Former MASLOC CEO jailed 10 years for causing Financial Loss


Former CEO of MASLOC Sedina Tamakloe Attionu has been sentenced to 10 years in prison with hard labour while former Chief Operating Officer of MASLOC, Daniel Axim has also been jailed for five years with hard labour.

They were both found guilty on 78 counts of causing financial loss to the state, stealing, conspiracy to steal, money laundering, and causing loss to public property in contravention of public procurement law.

The two have been on trial since 2019. The state called six witnesses in all while the first accused person Sedina Tamakloe was tried in absentia as she absconded after obtaining the permission of the court to seek a medical checkup outside the country. The second accused person, however, testified in person but did not call any witnesses.

The offences for which the accused persons have been found guilty border on the appropriation of monies meant for MASLOC activities between the period of 2013 and 2016.
