A complaint from Abah Abah against counterfeiters
At the hearings of August 10 and 11, Polycarpe Abah Abah explained that he had not ordered any transfer before his departure from the Tax Department on December 8, 2004. He indicated the account in question is not an account private but that of the direction of Taxes. The account in question is contained in a letter to the head of the Crtv from the Acting Head of the Large Business Division of the Tax Department on August 9, 2004.
The account in question, he said, was hectic only after his departure from the Tax Department. And the money that was debited was used to pay the temporary staff and service providers of the Tax Department. The former minister pledged legal action against the perpetrators for what he considered a false memorandum of understanding that the prosecution used to prosecute him.
