Of the dozen grievances identified by civil society organizations to characterize the facts revealed in the report, double breach of trust, fraudulently executed financial transaction and transaction, violation of the provisions of the Code of Procedure for the award of public contracts, criminal association through the execution of international trade operations, figure prominently, jointly executed with blacklisted foreign companies considered by the international community to be unacceptable, etc.
For Dodji Nettey Koumou, president of business intelligence, signatory of the complaint, this is unacceptable. "At the level of civil society organizations, what we expect is that there will be a judicial follow-up in view of everything we have found. It is important that, if we all want, in our country, an end to impunity for economic crimes, a judicial follow-up must be given to this case, "he insists.
The complaint is referred to the first prosecutor's office for examination.
There has been no official reaction. This is the first time that civil society organizations have filed a complaint following a report on public management.
