"We Are Disappointed In The Police" - Minority Hits Hard On IGP Over His Response


The Minority in Parliament has expressed disappointment at the Inspector-General of Police, Dr. George Dampare over his response to the British High Commissioner.


According to the Minority, it was not expecting such utterances from the IGP. Speaking to Journalist in Parliament on Tuesday, the Tamale Central MP said “We are concerned about the consistent undermining of freedom of expression guaranteed under the 1992 Constitution. That even a foreign diplomat cannot simply express her view, that how will this particular one go, how will this investigation go" “There is a difference between a Facebook post and a real and actual threat to the stability of our country. Probably they are running ahead of their shadows because they know what they are doing. So freedom of expression remains the most fundamental building block of democracy. Even a diplomat can be questioned simply by saying how will this one too go.” The utterances by the Minority Leader follow a statement from the Ghana Police Service warning the British High Commissioner to stay out of internal matters of the country.
