The Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources responsible for Lands and Forestry, Hon. Benito Owusu-Bio has received on behalf of the Sector Minister, reports on Terms of Reference 1 and 2 from the Sole Inquirer, who was tasked to investigate the circumstances surrounding the true ownership of some parcel of Land in dispute between the Bulgarian Embassy and a private developer.
Upon receiving the report, Hon. Benito expressed his profound gratitude to the Sole Inquirer saying that the Ministry together with the Lands Commission and other stakeholders involved in the land case would peruse the reports provided and make available the contents in due course.
He hoped that per the expertise of the Sole Inquirer, the findings of the reports provided will indeed be a great asset which will guide matters to do with Bulgarian Embassy Land Case.
In a brief background to the reports received, the Deputy Minister spelt out the Terms of Reference of the Sole Inquirer, adding that due to the urgency of the issue relating to the Bulgarian Embassy, the Minister gave the Sole Inquirer an ultimatum of seven (7) days to present a Report on his Terms of Reference (1) and (2), however, due to the voluminous nature of the work, he said the Sole Inquirer sought for an extension which was granted by the Sector Minister for the proper scrutiny into the case.
Hon. Benito says the Sole inquirer still has some grace period out of the one (1) month given him to present a full Report on Terms of Reference (3) to (5).
