The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has confirmed that Victor Kusi Boateng and Kwabena Adu Gyamfi are distinct individuals according to their Tax Identification Number (TIN) records.
Its letter said, at the time of the registration for Kusi Boateng (August 13, 2013) and Adu Gyamfi (March 15, 2016), “the registration system was not biometric and did not have any facial recognition features for the detection of duplicate faces.”
It went further to explain that it had started investigations into the claim by Ablakwa that the two individuals were one and the same person, who was using the double identity for criminal reasons.
Ablakwa shared the GRA letter as part of his court papers opposing a contempt suit brought against him by Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, alias Victor Kusi Boateng, who happens to be the secretary to the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral of Ghana.
In the document, which was contained in an 85-page affidavit filed by Ablakwa’s lawyers to buttress his reasons that the plaintiff was engaged in a vexatious exercise with the contempt suit.
Ablakwa was charged with contempt of court for his handling of a restraining order document prohibiting him from publishing Rev. Kusi Boateng’s personal information and other documents.
The motion for contempt, which was filed by Rev Kusi Boateng, indicated that the reasons Ablakwa gave for rejecting the document were not tangible.
According to the court documents sighted by GhanaWeb, the MP said that he could not be served the document because he was on his way to Parliament but the House was on recess as at the time the order was being served.
