The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) will investigate further officials who have been implicated in the report of the World Cup Commission set up by President John Dramani Mahama following Ghana’s poor run at Brazil 2014.

This was announced by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, on Thursday, June 11 upon the release of government’s White Paper on the report.

The report calls for investigations to ascertain claims of losses totaling $1,002,000 during the matches involving Ghana and Cape Verde, Ghana and Nigeria, and Ghana and Togo ahead of the Brazil tournament.

Again, the investigations would establish the claim by the GFA that an amount of $350,000 it received from the Japan friendly game was used to offset the deficit incurred in the Ghana - Cape Verde qualifying match.

Several revelations were made during the sitting of the Commission including the fact that a consultant was paid $20,000 for directing caterers for Ghana fans in Brazil to a super market.

Mrs Appiah-Oppong, however, stressed that some of the recommendations were not accepted while modifications were made to others.

“The next step after the issuance of this White Paper is the implementation of the recommendations, which have been accepted, as well as those accepted with modifications,” she said.

President Mahama set up the three-member Commission to investigate the backroom rumpus that contributed to Ghana’s early exit from the global showpiece in Brazil.
