Despite Ghanaian laws, Ghana’s Government paid KRL All-embracing for casework furnished for the New Patriotic Party.
Despite US laws, KRL All-embracing furnished casework for a followed party , whilst fact paid with the aid of using the government of a followed u . s . a ..
The KRL-NPP contract




On June the primary 2016, American PR near KRL All-embracing entered into an acceding with i am For Nana Foundation, an alignment created with the aid of using Ghana’s New Patriotic Affair (NPP) to armamentarium the presidential assault of Nana Akufo-Addo. steady with the allotment anatomy filed with the U.S. Department of Justice (which
adviser followed lobbying), the almsman of the casework furnished with the aid of using KRL became a “overseas political party”, New Patriotic Party.
The declared purpose of the acceding became to “guide chargeless and honest elections in Ghana in abutment of Nana Akufo-Addo Presidential applicant of the New Patriotic Party”. KRL became energetic to house lobbying casework (with the US authorities , the donor affiliation and media institutions), admonish Nana Addo at the communications strategy, and “offer in-u . s . a . abutment as tailored and tailored at some point of the balloter process”.
In fact, steady with KRL’s internet site, the PR near based and led with the aid of using Riva Levinson, a consultant in bedraggled lobbying and get right of entry to operations (Riva Levinson’s bedraggled lobbying and get right of entry to operations), ran definitely the presidential assault of Nana Akufo-Addo (www.krlinternational.com/case-study-ghana-election).
Signatories and costs
The acceding became energetic with the aid of using Chris Beatty, handling administrator of KRL, and Ken Ofori Atta, administrator of i am For Nana Foundation.
A adept accent of Riva Levinson, Chris Beatty had moreover been complicated inside the Kosmos Energy-backed practice assault adjoin Ghana in 2009-2010 (www.opensourceinvestigations.com/). NPP’s capital financier Ken Ofori Atta is Nana Akufo Addo’s accent and assault bills manager. Appointed Accounts Minister in January 2017, Ofori Atta has afresh partnered with ExxonMobil inside the Deepwater Cape Three Points oil block (www.opensourceinvestigations.com/).
The charge described inside the association became 7,500 USD consistent with a long time after expenses, however the bills have been plentiful higher. By January 31, 2017, i am For Nana Foundation had already paid KRL introduced than 100,000 USD for “consulting casework and travel-associated expenses”.
Nana Akufo-Addo gained the December 2016 presidential elections and affected appointment on January 27, 2017. KRL linked to assault on Nana Addo’s and NPP’s behalf.
A association addendum became energetic on February 27, 2017. The almsman (NPP) and purpose (helping Nana Addo) remained an equivalent . But the bills have been no pleasant fabricated with the aid of using a clandestine entity, i am For Nana Foundation; they have been now fabricated with the aid of using the Appointment of the President-pick for Ghana, utility on hand price range.
According to the Amendment filed with the aid of using KRL with the United States regulators, “authentic association became with the acclamation assault basis for Nana Akufo-Addo. He have become the President-pick and is now the President of Ghana. This association addendum for this commercial aeon is amid KRL All-embracing LLC and consequently the Appointment of the President take delivery of for Ghana”.
Despite each Ghanaian and US laws, KRL All-embracing became accouterment casework for a Ghanaian political affair (New Patriotic Party), whilst fact paid with the aid of using Ghana’s Government.
Cover-ups and apocryphal statements
On June 28, 2017, KRL All-embracing and consequently the Government of Ghana, represented with the aid of using the Ministry of Finance, entered right into a substitute and changed consultancy account contract.
On August 30, 2017, KRL filed an Amendment “to investigate alternate in call handiest of a KRL All-embracing LLC client”, suggesting that the backup of i am For Nana Foundation with the Appointment of the President-pick of Ghana had by no means happened.
Without advertence the February 27, 2017 association extension, KRL claimed that “as soon as President Akufo-Addo took Appointment a substitute acceding became consumated amid KRL All-embracing LLC and consequently the Government of Ghana, Ministry of Accounts on June 28, 2017. At that point in time – KRL stated – the acceding amid KRL All-embracing LLC and i Am For Nana Foundation became terminated, due to the fact the assault accomplishment no pleasant existed.”
It became a atrocious assault to camouflage the fact that for 4 months (from February 27 to June 28, 2017), Ghana’s Government paid KRL for casework furnished resulting from the New Patriotic Party. By June 28, 2017, KRL had noted the Appointment of the President-pick for Ghana as a applicant in 3 paperwork filed with the United States Department of Justice.
The camouflage went alike further. at some stage in a account filed with the United States Department of Justice in August 2017, KRL All-embracing claimed that lobbying casework furnished with the aid of using KRL in April 2017 have been fabricated resulting from “the Ministry of Accounts of the Republic of Ghana”.
This became an on hand apocryphal statement. The on my own association powerful in April 2017 became amid KRL and consequently the Appointment President-pick for Ghana. The acceding amid KRL All-embracing and Ghana’s Ministry of Accounts would not pass till months later, on June 28, 2017.
Riva Levinson, the adviser who led Nana Akufo-Addo’s 2016 presidential campaign, is commonly murderer with the aid of using dictators, autocrats, guerrilla leaders and base politicians to blanch their crimes.




Levinson did PR for Somali absolutist Siad Barre alike as he became massacring civilians. She became murderer with the aid of using Jonas Savimbi, baton of Unita, an Angolan agitator accumulation adjourned with the aid of using ageism authorities of South Africa . Levinson lobbied for the US authorities to re-instate adept ties with the barbarous and base management of Equatorial Guinea’s President Mbasogo. KRL International, the PR near based with the aid of using Levinson, became murderer with the aid of using the government of South Sudan on the acme of the civilian war. KRL correct DRC President Joseph Kabila’s bid to paste to power.
Giving Somali absolutist a affable face
One of the bloodiest African dictators, Somalia’s above President General Siad Barre, murderer lobbying aggregation Black, Manafort and Stone in 1989. The near became based with the aid of using Paul Manafort (the American lobbyist restricted for diverse crimes in 2019). Riva Levinson became the lobbying near on hand who shaped on Somalia. Manafort beatific her to in reality take delivery of Barre guarantee a million-greenback on hand family members contract.




Riva Levinson did PR for Somali absolutist Siad Barre alike as he became massacring civilians. steady with the Africa Watch Committee, “each the burghal citizenry and nomads energetic inside the geographical region have been subjected to approximate killings, approximate arrest, apprehension in abominable conditions, torture, intimidation, and terror”.
