NPP Gurus face arrest

Posted by Business in Ghana on June 21, 2009

THE GOVERNMENT of Ghana has frozen the constitutional rights of New Patriotic Party (NPP) gurus and former government officials to have legal representation when they are invited to national security facilities for interrogation.  Lawyers who followed, Frank Agyekum, former deputy Minister of Information and Sammy Crabbe, Greater Accra NPP chairman, ordered to report to the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) for interrogation yesterday on separate cases were kicked out of the interrogation hall with an excuse that it was an ‘instruction from above’.  DAILY GUIDE gathered that Sammy Crabbe, who was invited through a phone call on Tuesday to report at the BNI, was threatened with arrest and detention because he insisted that he wanted to have his lawyer present during his interrogation.

  1. Once again, NONSENSE. If you are going to interrogate people, say so instead of a claim of friendly chat. What is a friendly chat in BNI office? We are back to a military government. We need to stop these unconstitutional acts. It is unacceptable and it needs to stop. Where is asomdwehene when we need him?
