Labour Court has charged the Executive Director of the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers, Ghana (COPEC-Ghana) Duncan Amoah, with an amount of GHS700 for refusing to file the relevant documents since the last adjournment of the case between Alfred Obeng Boateng and Duncan Amoah over death threat allegations on the 18th of May 2017.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST), Alfred Obeng Boateng, sued Duncan Amoah, over death threat allegations made against the BOST CEO.

Duncan Amoah had said that his life was in danger after he uncovered an alleged shady deal at BOST.

This comes after Duncan Amoah claimed that Ghana lost in excess of GHS23 million in revenue from a transaction BOST had with an unlicensed company.

The losses,  COPEC-Ghana insists, were recorded at every stage of the value chain from the sale of some 1.8 million barrels of crude oil, to fees for holding the rest of the crude.

The case has been adjourned to Monday, 25 June 2018.
