We are not a fraudulent company – Zoomlion fumes

Management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited has taken due notice of a publication, circulating in some sections of the media, captured under the banner headline “Auditor-General describes Zoomlion as ‘fraudulent, drain on country.

The story, mainly  emanates from the website  (www.myjoyonline.com), and is replicated on a number of other news portals.

The article, purports to derive its content from a reply filed by the Lawyers for the Auditor General in response to an appeal filed by Zoomlion against the Auditor General’s decision to surcharge and disallow certain payments made to Zoomlion Ghana Limited in respect of contracts the Company had executed.

We wish to state that the tone of the publication is laced with mischief, actuated by malice and calculated to lower the standing of the company and injure the hard-earned reputation of Zoomlion.

For the record, Zoomlion Ghana Limited has always co-operated with audits into its operations by statutory bodies.

It is common practice, however, for organizations to disagree with the outcomes of an audit report when they strongly believe that it fails to reflect the reality.

Drawing inspiration from the preceding point, Zoomlion Ghana Limited is in Court against the Auditor General.

The purported reply on which the (www.myjoyonline) story relies, is at best an expression of opinion by the Auditor General’s Lawyers and not a statement of fact. Until the High Court determines otherwise, it remains an OPINION.

It therefore lies ill and mischievous in the judgement of any media house to project such an OPINION as accurate and seek to use same as a basis to describe Zoomlion in such objectionable and repulsive terms. The supplementary reply filed by the Auditor General on April 23, 2019
