The exposed questionable nuclear scientist, Mehra Tevakoli Keshe who runs an organization known as the Keshe Foundation has made threats against Ghana’s Minister of the Environment, Science and Technology, Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, saying Dubai is the wrong place to hide money, a claim suggesting that the Minister is hiding stolen funds in Dubai, but the Minister tells ghanabusinessnews.com he has never been to Dubai before.
In one of the Keshe Foundation’s weekly live broadcast published on Youtube Friday July 7, 2017, Mr. Keshe expressed surprise about what he describes as the “sudden attacks on the Keshe Foundation.”
“If anyone attacks Keshe Foundation, we will open the books. We have enough evidence that will be extremely not good for those who sit in Vienna,” he said.
He went on to demand a retraction from the Minister, in reaction to a news report by the GNA citing the Minister saying after scrutiny the Ministry found that Mr. Keshe was not genuine.
Keshe who said the Ghana Standards Board stands by him made these veiled threats at the Minister. “I advise the Minister to retract the interview. And I give you a tip, Dubai is wrong place to put hidden finances. I am much bigger than threats. I am a senior adviser in the nuclear industry,” he said.
“We release the paper, it is for the Minister to decide. We will release information, it will not be nice,” he said, among other things.
But Prof. Frimpong-Boateng told ghanabusinessnews.com on the phone, “Let him release it. I have never been to Dubai before.”
The Minister was quoted in the GNA report saying, “After my appointment I decided to review the operations of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission and I came across this Iranian Scientist called Mehran Tavakoli Keshe and was not convinced with his activities…… so I told my colleagues to look into his activities to help me have satisfaction,” Prof. Frimpong-Boateng was quoted as saying.
The Minister also indicated that after checking with Queen Mary College, University of London where Keshe claimed to have studied Nuclear Physics it was discovered that the University did not even offer Atomic Physics. In his response in the Youtube video, Keshe uses some documents and Wikipedia pages in his defence.
The report noted further that Keshe was reported to be preparing to set up an Energy Space Centre at the Atomic Energy and that by next year, Ghana would go to the Space, which the President of Ghana had no idea of.
“He also brought certain things to Belgium that was artificial and people paid money for it….and also devised certain equipment which he brought samples to the Director-General of the Atomic Commission claiming it would reduce power consumption in people’s homes……and I don’t know if this is true,” he said.
According to the report, the Minister cited a liquid the Iranian had manufactured known as ‘plasma water’ which was examined by the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) and the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and was found to be pure water.
Keshe alleged the liquid which he had bottled and sold at $10 each could cure diabetes and hypertension and supported his claim with a video from Youtube as a strategy to market the product, the report added.
Keshe in the Youtube video claims that the staff of the Ghana Standards Board tell him the ‘plasma water’ is good and it works for them, because they use it in their homes.
“The Standards Board say they stand by me,” he says.
Meanwhile, the Director-General of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, Dr. Benjamin J. B. Nyarko told ghanabusinessnews.com in an exclusive interview published Wednesday July 6, 2017 that the Commission had abrogated the Memorandum of Understanding it signed with the Keshe Foundation because its claims couldn’t be proven.
People familiar with Keshe have told ghanabusinessnews.com that his claims are unproven, and he is in the habit of slandering those who criticize him, forcing many who disagree with him not to speak out.
