FixTheCountry Drags National Security, Police Service, EC Before Right To Information Commission

The FixTheCountry group says it has hauled three national institutions before the Commission on the Right to Information for failure to respond to its requests submitted under the Right to Information Act.

The three include the Ghana Police Service (GPS), the Electoral Commission and the Ministry of National Security.

The group said the Ministry of National Security failed to grant it CCTV recordings of the interrogation of Citi FM’s Caleb Kudah on his arrest on May 11, 2021; report of the investigation committee that was set up to probe the arrest; and the names, designation and roles of the individuals who effected the arrest of Zoe Abu Baidoo at the premises of Citi FM.

The FixTheCountry movement said it hasn’t yet received a response from the Ghana Police Service over its request for information on the provision of food and access to medical care by persons in police detention.

The Electoral Commission, on its part, hasn’t yet responded to requests for agreements concluded with lawyers to protect the Commission and its commissioners, it added.
