Ghana Health Service Accountant finally granted Ghc600k bail for stealing, forgery


The embattled former Accountant of the Ghana Health Service(GHS) of the Buipe Polyclinic in the Savanna Region, Mr. Osman Jamal-Deen has finally been granted bail by a Tamale High Court.

The suspect who spent several weeks in prison incarceration after his first appearance in court was granted bail by the court presided over by Lordship Richard Kogyapwa in the sum of GHS600,000 with two sureties to be justified.

It has also been established that the matter is under case management after which disclosures could be made despite the suspect offering to refund the cash and pay reparation to the state.

Mr. Osman Jamal-Deen who is facing charges of Stealing and forgery has pleaded not guilty to both charges but is offering to change his plea provided the state is willing to accept his proposition as contained under section 35 of the Courts Act.


Mr. Osman Jamal-Deen reportedly forged the signature of the Medical Superintendent of the facility and issued NIB cheques to the tune of GHC 580,288.17.

A face value of the numerous cheques reveal a staggering amount of GHC336,599.17 stolen from the Buipe Internally Generated Drug Account with the Tamale Main Branch of NIB.

The Medical Superintendent of the facility detected the crime, reported it to the Regional Director and then got the suspect arrested.

The Ghana Health Service then set up a fact-finding committee that audited the embattled accountant and corroborated findings; followed by a disciplinary committee that was set to take him through disciplinary proceedings.
