Dear good friend, The entire family of Honorable Kwadwo Baah Wiredu wish to inform you that our father,uncle and in-law was Finance and Economic Planning Minister Honorable Kwadwo Baah Wiredu until his death. He died on Sept 24 2008 and was buried on October 2008 under NPP Party [National Patriotic Party]. My country had election and the ruling party lost in the election under President John Agyekum Kufuor and the new President Prof. Evans John Atta Mills won the election and was sworn in on the 7th of January 2009 Since after his death my sister and children has been denied access to travel out because his party in which my in law was serving as a minister before his untimely death lost the election and the present government seized the entire family traveling documents. Before his death he deposited the sum of USD$11,500,000.00 to a finance firm here because he is not allowed to deposit such fund in the bank to avoid trace indeed all the documents concerning this deposit are now with my sister the wife of the late minister, of which we can make available once you indicate your interest to take custody of this funds on behalf of the family as our nominated next of kin and his business associate before he died I will discuss with my sister and the children to allow you to take possession of the funds so that the government will not trace it and confiscate the money.
