Ghana's IGP Bows To Court Order To Reinstate 17 Ex-Cops
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) has through the Director of the Legal Department of the Ghana Police Service promised an Accra Fast Track High Court that the 17 dismissed recruits would be reinstated in two weeks. The IGP was represented in court by the Director General of Legal Prosecution for the GPS, ACP Ken Yeboah, who made the announcement to the court. He told the Court of Appeals Judge Dennis Adjei of the decision when the case was called on Monday. ACP Yeboah told Citi News, “they have given us 14 days to reinstate them and then we would get back to it on the 21 to inform the court. ” The 17 recruits dragged their boss and the Police Service to court last year following their dismissal and eviction from their official accommodation. The lawyer for the aggrieved recruits, Joseph Kofi Yeboah, had earlier told Citi News he expected the police authorities to set a date for the reinstatement on Monday. The parties are to return to court on November 21 for the court to ascertain if the reinstatement had been done.
