COLUMBUS - The Ohio Treasurer's office made available today a recently completed independent internal review into activities and operations related to former Deputy Treasurer Amer Ahmad who oversaw financial and office operations for former Ohio Treasurer Kevin Boyce in 2009 and 2010.
In 2013, former Deputy Treasurer Ahmad was indicted on money laundering, conspiracy, wire fraud and bribery charges in conjunction with a kickback scheme involving investment decisions made during his tenure with the Boyce Administration in the Ohio Treasury from 2009-2010. Prompted by these indictments, Treasurer Mandel announced in September 2013 that the office would conduct an independent internal review to investigate the fraud and any loss of taxpayer money. In early 2014, Attorney General Mike DeWine appointed BakerHostetler LLP as the third party investigator. The lead investigator at BakerHostetler LLP was a former Federal Prosecutor.
