Sources close to GRA also told Citi News that the case is currently being investigated.

The Daily Guide Newspaper had earlier reported that an act of one of the interdicted officers allegedly caused GRA to incur a total liability of over GHc17 million.

The newspaper also reported that the affected workers have been asked to hand over all GRA properties in their possession and also stay away from GRA until the investigations are over.

According to the newspaper, whereas some of them will be getting two-thirds of their monthly salaries during the period of the investigations, others will not receive anything until the case was over.
