On December 8, 2022, at quarry sites in Kasoa in the Central area, the terrifying tragedy took place.
Myjoyonline.com claims that the Chinese national working in the quarry sites freed the GRA officials in an effort to keep them from performing their official duties.
According to reports, Joseph Annan, Head of Enforcement at the GRA and in charge of Accra Central, corroborated the occurrence and claimed that the Chinese citizens immediately let loose their dogs as soon as they noticed the officers.
“Today we had some unpleasant experiences. Dogs were released on us, but we are grateful to our security guards for acting as the staff’s preventive measure.
“There are a lot of Chinese nationals operating here without paying the VAT, and when we come to enforce the law, they open their dogs,” he said as quoted by the news website.
Because the aforementioned Chinese people have a history of hindering GRA officers from enforcing tax rules, Annan warned that they would not get away with their behavior this time.
“We’ll deal with them because they tried to push us away. After the case has been looked into, the docket will be finished and given to our legal department for potential prosecution.
Officers went to Executive Quarry, Pilot Stone Quarry, Tonnisco Quarry, and Hao Xin Quarry, which Annan claimed were all “Chinese businesses operating in Ghana without paying the VAT.”
Some quarry enterprises in the Shai-Osudoku Municipality have already been closed by GRA officials for failing to pay taxes.
