Registrar General’s Department to issue new certificates to protect against fraud

Accra, July 28, Ghanadot/GNA - The Marriage Registry of the Registrar General’s Department is to issue new marriage certificates with security code to prevent fraud and easy duplication.

The new certificate has an embossment of the Ghana Coat of Arms and other security features.

Mr Joseph Kofi Harlley, Acting Registrar, said this on Tuesday at a workshop in Accra for stakeholders on the new standard operating procedures in marriage registration.

It was organized by the European Union in collaboration with the Ghana Immigration Service.

In a speech read on his behalf, Mr Harlley said there was the need to implement a new standard of operations in the wake of the influx of illegal sources of documents such as birth and marriage certificates and passports to acquire travel documents and visas.

The workshop was also to train stakeholders in the Marriage Registry in document fraud detection and identify lapses in current operating procedures so as to produce and adopt a transparent marriage documentation scheme.

The stakeholders included personnel from the Crime Investigation Division (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Bank of Ghana, National Identification Authority and religious leaders.
