Ghana. According to
CountryAAH, the government began to pay damages to a couple of
thousand people who have been subjected to abuse during
previous military dictatorships. These are relatively small
amounts to each, a total of just over SEK 10 million, and
the remuneration is mainly symbolic; a recognition of the
injustices they have been exposed to. The payments were made
on the recommendation of the National Reconciliation
Commission appointed in 2002.
Transport Minister Richard Anane was dismissed in October
following criticism from the Ombudsman's institution. He was
suspected of abuse of position after paying over SEK
700,000. to his mistress in the United States, a sum he
could hardly afford legally.
