Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, the head of the parliamentary committee looking into the recording that was released about the attempt to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP), has stated that the committee is thinking about allowing witnesses to cross-examine themselves.
According to Samuel Atta Akyea, this would provide the parties the chance to clarify their understanding and ask the pertinent questions.
“We are looking at it critically. For the first time you are facing your accuser; what questions do you want to ask your accuser? And who will run away from the one who is trying to embarrass him without asking him very pertinent questions which will inure to his innocence he said on Citi FM”.
The National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah, has been ordered to appear before the committee on Wednesday for more inquiries.
A second appearance before the committee has also been requested for Bugri Naabu, the former Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, on September 13.
At the conclusion of the hearing, Mr. Akyea stated that all witnesses were required to show up for the sitting on Wednesday with their attorneys.
“The witnesses should come back tomorrow with their lawyers. The IGP should come with his lawyers, the Minister of National Security should show up with his lawyers and proceedings will continue,” he stated.
