The Police administration has dismissed the former Director General in-charge of Human Resources at the Ghana Police Service, COP Patrick Timbilla for his alleged involvement in the recruitment scandal that rocked the service in 2015.
He was placed under house arrest and later interdicted two years ago for his alleged role in the scam.
The special taskforce which was set up to investigate the matter is said to have seen text message evidence and other correspondence between him and the victims.
The special taskforce therefore recommended his interdiction for fear of interfering with the ongoing investigations.
In February 2015, about 200 police recruits went to the police training school with fake recruitment letters. About 10 people were arrested and Mr. Timbilla was interdicted for allegedly masterminding the scandal.
Patrick Timbilla is also alleged to have received ¢11,400 through his Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) account which is believed to be proceeds of the recruitment scam.
He was also charged with receiving ¢10,000 from one Aisha which the committee believes are proceeds from the recruitment scam.
Mr. Timbilla’s fourth charge is that he allegedly received an amount of ¢80,000 from Alifa Adams in the company of Wuni Salinko, both suspects in the recruitment scam at his Ridge Residence.
The fifth Charge which Timbilla is fighting is the allegation that he met 14 victims and agents of the enlistment fraud at the forecourt of the police officers mess and assured them that they would be enlisted at the appropriate time.
