HC Deb 11 November 1936 vol 317 cc890-1W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has made further inquiries respecting the alleged forgery of a letter purporting to be sent from Sir Offori Atta to the commissioner of eastern provinces, Koforidua, containing an attempt to pervert justice; and what steps he is taking to trace the alleged forger?


I have received a full report from the Governor of the Gold Coast, from which I am satisfied that the letters dated the 26th of June and the 8th July, alleged to have been written by Sir Offori Atta to certain Government officers, are forgeries. The local police have the matter under investigation.
