I Am Not Biased Against Dampare- Atta Akyea

Samuel Atta Akyea

Mr. Samuel Atta Akyea, the Chair of the Parliamentary Committee investigating the leaked tape involving the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, debunk accusations of bias against the IGP.

In a statement to the media following an in-camera hearing, Mr. Atta Akyea dismissed the allegations. He insisted he had conducted the Committee’s affairs impartially. He responded to the points brought up by Mr. Kwame Gyan, who is representing Dr. Dampare. The chairman laid it out that there was disagreement around the term “doctored” used in his previous notes.

He noted that he and his committee members provided Dr. Dampare with the opportunity to speak to the press. This he stated to further defend the fairness of their proceedings.

He spoke with regards to the exclusion of members of the Police Service Management Board from the in-camera hearing. Mr. Atta Akyea made it clear that it was intended to ensure fairness, as non-witnesses should not be present during such proceedings.

The bi-partisan committee was formed to look into the authenticity of a leaked audio recording. This leak had a plot to remove IGP Dr. Dampare from office. The probe, set in motion in response to calls by the Minority Caucus in Parliament, is ongoing, with the committee composed of members from both the Majority and Minority sides of Parliament.

The scrutiny seeks to yield clarity regarding the leaked audio’s veracity. The committee will deliver its report to Parliament on September 10, 2023. The committee is composed of technical expert Dr. Isaac Lartey Annang, appointed to assist in the process.
