Investigators meet over ex-Ghanaian Minister’s arrest

O. B. Amoah

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Police Administration is in a meeting at the Headquarters over the arrest of Mr. Osei Bonsu Amoah, a former Deputy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports.

Mr. Amoah who is also a Member of Parliament (MP) for Aburi- Nsawam was arrested and detained overnight last Sunday but was released yesterday, Monday, on a GHc20 million bail with two sureties, and asked to report today.

Mr. Amoah’s arrest was in connection with the GHC 51 million judgement debt payment to Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

Information gathered by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at the CID headquarters indicated that the purpose of Tuesday’s meeting was to, among other things, determine the legality or otherwise of his arrest since as a sitting MP the former Deputy Minister is entitled to Parliamentary immunity.

Meanwhile, information reaching the GNA indicate that Mr. Yaw Osafo Marfo, former Minister of Education Youth and Sports in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regime has also been invited by the police to assist in investigations into the same case.
