Nearly a hundred officials have squandered 11 billion FCFA from the Ministry of Finance; 8.477 billion was shared by 14 people and 3.0280028 billion FCFA spent by the others, according to the Quotidien Emergence newspaper.

"The public wealth continues to fuel the appetites of the most voracious, from central services to services under guardianship and other partners," stated Quotidien Emergence of Tuesday, December 22, 2015, in its political column.

Several diverting alleged perpetrators come from the MINFI. Out of these, Mbia Enguéné, former Tpg with 9 co-defendants, including the Treasury Inspector Maale Ngoumé epouse Toué; Djidéré Etina, senior inspector of the treasury, have been accused of embezzling 3.2 billion FCFA.

The newspaper goes on to cite the case of the former director general of taxes, Polycarpe Abah Abah, which it must meet the diversion of checks to the tune of 1.7 billion.

MINFI also continue with 25 lady cashiers Awegue Nadine, Lum Bernadette Mofor, Tsalla Nzié and 22 co-defendants in the cleaning services. They looted 478 million FCFA.

Ntet Mireille Pascale, Aba’a Marthe Eliane épouse Fame Ndongo and 9 others have also been accused and suspected of embezzling 411 million FCFA.

As a reminder, Sieur Mbock Boumsong Ernest, the former head of Autonomous Sinking Fund (CAA), had earlier run away with 95.268 million FCFA, the newspaper reported.

The list which is by no means exhaustive shows that: "Clearly, the Ministry of Finance has become for many, an illicit source of enrichment," the newspaper said.

To date, there are 20 cases involving MINFI officials who have already been summoned at the Special Criminal Court (TCS).
