Police Sends Strong Warning To Ghana Media Outlets. (Read)

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, has announced the police carry a job to do and are required to impact arrest any time of the day, particularly when people decline to respect petitions lengthened to their reach.

He told the public no one is above the law and, hence, the laws must be given rise to take action in the country.

Accordingly, he instilled in media institutes to make it open to their partners that the law would take its legal procedure when partners of the media are established on the wrong side.

The IGP added that this is when the Police Administration met some members of the Ghana Journalists Association last Friday to communicate how the police and the agencies could fill out each other’s processes to stimulate peace and safety for the improvement of the country.

Also at the meeting existed the Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association and the Private Newspapers Publishing Association of Ghana.

The conversations centered on the enforcement of constitutions in the area of the arrest and trial of journalists who contravene the laws of the state, the insurance of press independence, the promotion of police-media connections, among others.

Dr. Dampare said outlets institutions should boldly denounce unskilled acts that fringed on corruption, since evacuating such conduct uncommented on emboldening the civilization who engage in them.

He also indicated that tuition on corruption is heightened, media practitioners should be held indebted for their efforts, and proponents of media practitioners who contravened the law must also be denounced since it spawns irresponsibility.

The IGP said agencies’ professionalism meant correspondents had the obligation to assess the information they put out.


At the end of the discussion, the police government and the administration of the media agreed on the precept that no one was above the law and, hence, the laws must be put to work.

That notwithstanding, they conceded that the enforcement of the law should not be observed to create a gap between the police and the media.

It was also agreed that for beneficial cooperation in the growth of law enforcement, the police must fall on the agencies led to generating media practitioners expected by the police to assist in examinations.
