CHINESE FISHING COMPANIES CHEAT FISHING LICENCE IN GHANA

On 30 March, OCCRP said that a new report says that Chinese-owned fishing companies cheated the Ghanaian government out of millions of dollars a year in fishing licence revenues by using shell companies to fraudulently obtain lower-priced local licences.  It is said that Ghana also fell short in its duties to punish and deter illegal fishing, imposing fines below the minimum amount required by law, according to an NGO.
