Victims of the DKM microfinance scandal have refused to comply with directives by the official liquidator for them to go through a manual verification process.
They claimed the liquidator had previously told them that the manual verification would not be necessary since the records of DKM cannot be found.
The liquidator of the DKM microfinance was expected to begin the manual verification process for victims Monday but the victims failed to show up. The verification became necessary as a result of irregularities that were recorded in its first disbursement exercise.
But Maxwell Mahama spokesperson of the DKM victims stressed: “I am referring you back to 20th September at the Sunyahni Coronation Park where we had the first creditors meeting. The official liquidator categorically stated that the physical records of DKM cannot be found.”
He went further, “she (liquidator) stated clearly that she was going to rely solely on the data on the system, so where are they going to get the manual documents for the verification. This is not realistic. There are no documents for a manual verification”.
The victims are also demanding that the official liquidator discloses the source of funding for the reimbursement.
Meanwhile, Principal Company Registrar at the Registrar General Department Jones Nathaniel Ansah says they have all the documents to back their calls for manual verification.
“We have all the documents, and this will be used to manually verify customers who were not captured in the DKM records. We were furnished with the list by the PricewaterhouseCoopers and we will go by that,” he insisted.
