Australia visa fraud: Deputy Sports Minister Suspended

The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has suspended the Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports Pius Enam Hadzide and Acting Director General of The National Sports Authority (NSA) Robert Sarfo Mensah following the deportation of some alleged journalists from Australia.

A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency Eugene Arhin said the suspension was borne out of preliminary investigations conducted into the case.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) and the National Sports Authority (NSA) are alleged to have facilitated visas for the supposed journalists, charging them between GH¢15,000 and GH¢22,000 to help them secure visas to Australia for the ongoing 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.
