The Social Security and National insurance Trust (SSNIT) has secured bench warrants for the arrest of directors and owners of 17 companies for defaulting in the deduction and payment of their employees? social security contributions.

The companies, all located in the Central and Western regions, are reported to be indebted to the tune of GHS 39,270.16 as at the end of December, 2012.

The criminal action was necessitated by the fact that those employers had consistently failed to honour their social security obligations in spite of the numerous appeals to pay up the accumulated contributions.
