The government has said it welcomes any efforts aimed at assisting it to succeed in its fight against illegal small-scale mining popularly known as galamsey.

Addressing a press briefing in Accra on Thursday, 28 February 2019, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told journalists that: “If any persons are found to have solicited monies or taken bribes to bend rules, the necessary action will be taken.”

His comment comes on the heels of the latest investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas which captured some officials of the government’s Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) taking a bribe to compromise the fight against galamsey.

According to Mr Nkrumah, the government will have the said tapes properly investigated using the raw unedited footage and anyone found culpable will be dealt with.
