Police have charged a former National Social Security Corporation or NASSCORP employee, Mr. Paul Mulbah Korvah with impersonating officials and forgery. It is alleged that the suspect is in the habit of placing current field inspectors’ names in documents and prepared tax payroll for business institutions.
A police charge sheet says Mr. Korvah was earlier in the employ of NASSCORP with assignment at the Department of Contribution and Records, but his services were allegedly terminated in May 2015 due to “untidiness and bad work habit.”
But despite his services allegedly being terminated, police alleged that Korvah failed to turn over his ID card, an instrument he has continued to use and parade himself as an employee of NASSCORP. The charge sheet says beside business entities, he also identified himself to individuals, presented alleged duplicated tax payroll spreadsheet of NASSCORP and inserted names of serving NASSCORP field inspectors in the blank spaces as authorized individuals and prepared tax payroll on behalf of business institutions.
He allegedly received cash in the sum of US$80 from business entities and individuals he worked for as payment for services rendered. “Predicated upon the above, defendant Paul Mulbah Korvah was arrested,” the police said, adding that he waived his statutory rights and chose to speak to police in the absence of his lawyer.
Following police investigation, he allegedly admitted to the commission of the crime. Police said they retrieved the NASSCORP ID card from Mr. Korvah, and charged him with impersonating officials and forgery.-
