A press statement issued by the British High Commission noted that Ghana’s law enforcement agency is now “investigating allegations of fraud and conspiracy relating to visa applications” against the accused.

The Commission said “though such cases are extremely rare,” it  takes allegations against any of its staff “extremely seriously and will always take the strongest possible action.”
