The Deputy Director of Legal Affairs at Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Johannes Velpa, on Monday, 17 December 2018 told the Accra High Court hearing the GHS271 million Opuni-Agongo case that some documents being demanded by the Counsel for the accused persons from the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG), have gone missing while others have been either “tampered with” or “misfiled”.

Mr Benson Nutsukpui, Counsel for the 2nd and 3rd accused persons, Seidu Agongo and Agricult, on Monday pointed out that the missing documents were “germane” to his cross-examination of the state’s witnesses in the case.

According to Mr Nutsukpui, the first document is an invoice attached to the letter of 20th November 2014, an evaluation report on Codapec/Hitec products submitted to COCOBOD per CRIG letter CRG27/118/4643 dated 31st August 2016 and a report on the analysis of two granular fertiliser samples in rice sack submitted to the Chief Executive on the 24th of October 2016 by a letter with reference number.
