Chairman of the Committee probing the leaked tape on the plot to oust the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Samuel Atta Akyea, has said that the committee will allow for cross-examination when necessary.

According to him, the committee doesn’t want to do a shoddy job thus, they would allow for witnesses to cross-examined each other to unravel the truth.

He also added that though some witnesses have been discharged however, they would be re-invited if need be.

“When we evaluate the evidence and realize that there is a need to bring Bugri Naabu back, we will do so. Even now, we have a situation where someone is talking about an original tape. If there is an original tape, and it will enlarge the scope of the interrogation, we will get it, give it to everyone, and enlarge the scope of the interrogation. We don’t want to do a shoddy job. Cross-examination is possible.”

“When there are controversial issues, I am of the view that we have to call the parties back, and they need to talk to each other. And then we will listen to what X said and what Y said, and then we will come to our conclusion and recommendations,” he added in a Citi interview.

Meanwhile, the committee will continue to probe Director General of Operations for the Ghana Police Service, COP George Alex Mensah today, Friday, September 1.

COP Mensah in his earlier interrogation said that “Dampare is not managing the Police Service well and the majority of police officers are not happy. You can call the police officers underground and they will tell you.”

He further admitted to being a sympathizer of the governing New Patriotic Party.
