26 Health Agencies to be Prosecuted: Public Account Committee of Parliament.



Over the years series of misconducts sequencially occur at this critical area. The Public Account Committee of Parliament directed 26 Health Agencies to be Prosecuted over violation of constitutional Provisions.



The Chairman of the PAC, Dr. James Klutse Avedzi, said, The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament has refered a maximum of Twenty-six Management Members of Budgets under the Ghana Health Service to the Attorney General for immediate prosecution to be done.



The chairman said, he has no power to prosecute, therefore with respect to separation of powers and checks and balances, they must be directed to the Authorized body for Prosecution to be made.

It means the Health Centers, have no regard to the law hence must be dealt with accordingly. HeĀ  added that, the health sector is critical hence critical measures must be put in place to deal with deviant behaviours.
