Police officers identified in Anas’ exposé on inquiry bail

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has confirmed that eight police officers were identified in the documentary film of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to have been complicit in wrongdoing.

The eight officers are under investigation already, the Department said, and are the first to appear before an investigative committee set up over the scandal.

These were made known on TV3’s Midday Live by Joseph Darkwa, the Public Relations Officer of the CID.

The Assistant Superintendent of Police told TV3’s Paa Kwesi Asare: “As I speak to you, they are on police inquiry bail”.

He said the Department has already written to all implicated officials in the exposé.

Some have responded to the letter, he adds.

He also says the cited officials – judges, court staff and prisons officers – are cooperating very well with the police.

Anas had petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, over hints that two implicated high court were planning to flee the country.
