MFWA’s Petition Leads to Investigations into Attack on Journalists

The Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into the assault on four journalists during a demonstration at the headquarters of ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The investigations came a month after we petitioned the acting chairman of the NPP and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to ensure that the perpetrators of the attacks are punished.

As part of the investigations, the Criminal Investigations Department of the Police Service met with MFWA officials on March 2 and 5, 2018 to seek further clarification on the assault on journalists Godfred Tenam and Prince Afum, Ebenezer Ackah, and Marie-Franz Fordjoe which occurred on December 21, 2017.

We commend the Ghana Police Service for responding to our call to investigate the matter and urge them to do a thorough job to ensure justice for the victims.
