Lawyer Okudzeto’’s argument is flawed

Posted by Business in Ghana on June 21, 2009

Ghanaian legislators, criminal and constitutional lawyers may be scratching and pouring their heads over dusty law books and court rulings following the challenge to the authority of the Bureau of National Investigation, BNI by lawyer Sam Okudzeto.  In citing instances of legal precedence, Mr. Okudzeto invoked the 1996 – 97 ruling of Edusei v. Attorney General – SCGLR at 1-62 and questioned the powers of the BNI or any state security agency to revoke a Ghanaian passport or question a suspect in the absence of their attorney.  Interestingly, it is clearly stated in page one of Republic of Ghana passport that a Ghanaian passport “is the property of the government of Ghana and must be surrendered on demand by an authorised representative of the Ghana government.

    If all Ghanaians should think and reason like you do then this country would collapse.
