Per the sentence of Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, Mrs Sedina Tamakloe Attionu is jailed for 10 years while Daniel Axim was jailed for five years.

The court also imposed fines on each of the convicts.

This was after the two were found guilty by the Financial and Economic Division of the High Court presided over by Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, a Justice of the Court of Appeal on all 78 Counts including willfully causing financial loss to the Republic.

The 78 counts include conspiracy to Steal, stealing, causing financial loss to the State, causing loss to public property, Improper Payment of Public Funds, Unauthorized Commitment resulting in Financial Obligation for the Government, Money Laundering, and Contravention of the Public Procurement Act.

EIB Network Legal Affairs Correspondent, Murtala Inusah, is reporting that, the judge wondered why the state is not bothered on seeking extradition for interpo to get the first accused person who is the most beneficiary of the crime.
