Over 1,000 Chief Inspectors of the Ghana Police Service whose appointments were terminated prior to their retirement, are requesting the a five-year salary from the government.
The former officers say they were prematurely retired in 1994; five years ahead of their retirement in 1999. According to them, no reasons were assigned for the termination of their contracts.
One of them, Ofoe Teye in Akuse in the Lower Manya Krobo of the Eastern Region told Onua FM that they were recalled to the Police Training Depot in Accra in 1995 for some courses but were told there was no accommodation for which reason they were sent back.
He said although a court has ordered the government and the Police administration to compensate them for the premature retirement, he noted they have failed to do so.
He thus appealed to the Inspector General of Police to intervene in the matter for them to be duly compensated .
Chief Inspector [retd] Teye claimed promises from the government to their members have not been fulfilled in the last 22 years. He said they still have their Police uniforms with them.
