Mr. Samuel Atta Akyea, the Chair of the Parliamentary Committee investigating the alleged leaked tape involving the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, refuted 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 addressed concerns raised by Mr. Kwame Gyan, Counsel for Dr. Dampare. The chairman stated that the term “doctored” in his previous remarks was the source of contention.
He emphasized 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 clarified that it was intended to ensure fairness, as non-witnesses should not be present during such proceedings.
The bi-partisan committee was formed to investigate the authenticity of a leaked audio recording. This leak discussed a plot to remove IGP Dr. Dampare from office. The probe, initiated 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 investigation aims to provide clarity regarding the leaked audio’s veracity. The committee will deliver its report to Parliament on September 10, 2023. The committee includes technical expert Dr. Isaac Lartey Annang, appointed to assist in the process.
