Minister Alamine Ousmane Mey Uncovers Network Of Fake Civil Servants In His Ministry, Who Have Collected Up To 1.3 Billion Francs From State Coffers


Five workers at the Direction of Treasury and Taxes  have been suspended by the Minister of Finance Alamine Ousmane Mey.

Last week, the 'L'Œil du Sahel' newspaper wrote about the existence of a network of fake diplomatic title holders at the Ministry of External Relations. This network was discovered, after a a Senior staff of the said Ministry was incarcerated in the Yaounde Central.

'La Nouvelle Expression' newspaper of yesterday 31st July 2017 reported that five Civil Servants of the Direction of Treasury and Taxes at the Ministry of Finance have been suspended from their functions by the Minister in charge Alamine Ousmane Mey.

According to the paper, the five scapegoats are implicated in a vast network of ghost civil servants, who have fraudulently collected not less than 1.3 Billion Francs from the State coffers. The five culprits suspended will face the law for 'gross misconduct and breach of professional ethics'.

The paper further reported that if the names of the culprits have been withheld it is because they had not only fraudulently increased the wages of state employees, but also forged false documents for the promotion of some 700 civil servants..


They are also accused of having regularly introduced faked or erased authentic computer data, for their own benefit or that of their relatives and their accomplices.
The ministry of Finance, like other Ministries in Cameroon, is considered by many as undermined by widespread duplicity.
According to official figures, more than  192 Billion Francs was fraudulently spent between 1987 and 2007 on ghost workers or people of dubious backgrounds.
The paper also recalled that in January, about 700 personnel of the Ministry of Finance were suspected of embezzling the alleged sum of 1.3 Billion Francs. Most of the culprits had been sent to prison then, but looks like the network is vast and thick to be completely dismantled.
