Ghana MPs accused of UK visa fraud

The British High Commission in Ghana has accused three current Ghanaian MPs and a former MP of allegedly perpetrating visa fraud using their diplomatic passports, My Joy Online reports.

A letter from the High Commission alleges that the four individuals have used their passports to apply for visas for people who travelled to the UK and did not return as stipulated in their visas.

It said that it considered the MPs actions to be “completely unacceptable… and in some cases these behaviours may arguably be criminal in nature,” the report says.

It added that it will only process visas made through the parliamentary protocol office, “who should verify that there is an official, parliamentary reason for the proposed visit”.
