The rule of law works in the UK; Ghana’s must ensure it does same for its people – Victor Smith

A Former Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK), Ambassador Victor Smith has said Ghana must ensure that the rule of law works properly in the country just as it does in other jurisdictions such as the UK.

He stated that in the UK, the law works for everybody irrespective of whoever is caught up in it.

Ghana must emulate this and ensure the law applies to all manner of person no matter who is in power, he said.

Ambassador Victor Smith was speaking in an interview with TV3’s Berla Mundi on on the ongoing funeral ceremony of the late Queen of England, on Monday September19.

“We have to ensure that the law is upheld, it doesn’t matter who is in power,” he said.

“Get the institution and system in place, let the law work. Things are voted for a purpose, planned organisation, budget had been put in place because she was going to die one day, everything is perfect, well thought out, well played out,” he added.

“We need to learn from them, we need to build our system to support us and work for the people.”

The Queen died at Balmoral aged 96.

Her family gathered at her Scottish estate after concerns grew about her health.

She came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
