The government of Ghana is taking necessary steps to ensure that former MASLOC CEO, Sedina Tamakloe Attionu, is extradited to Ghana in order to serve her 10-year jail term.

This decision comes after the High Court sentenced Tamakloe to 10 years in prison with hard labour on Tuesday, April 16. Additionally, the court also sentenced Daniel Axim, the former Chief Operating Officer of MASLOC, to a five-year jail term.

Deputy Attorney General Alfred Tuah-Yeboah expressed his approval of the court’s decision, specifically highlighting the reassurance that Tamakloe will be brought back to the country to face her sentence. Tuah-Yeboah emphasized the importance of this judgment in expediting justice and mentioned Ghana’s legal framework for extraditing individuals from abroad to face legal consequences domestically.

“We have started the process but with this judgment, it’s going to speed up the process. You know in Ghana we have various laws. You can choose to stay away but so far as we have laws for which you can extract from other countries to Ghana, in case there is a judgment against you like this one, be rest assured that she will be brought down to face judgment,” he stated.

The court found both Tamakloe and Axim guilty on 78 counts for causing financial loss to the state, theft, conspiracy to steal, money laundering, and violating public procurement laws which resulted in the loss of public property. The government is now working diligently to ensure that justice is served and that those responsible for these crimes are held accountable.
