Crime & Punishment of Tuesday, 19 March 2013
The Human Rights Court will today resume hearing of the contempt application filed by former Deputy Head of the Police Commercial Crimes Unit, Gifty Tehoda, against two top Police officials.
Madam Tehoda was implicated in a mysterious cocaine swap case at the CID headquarters and was subsequently arrested by the Bureau of National Investigations.
The two officials, COP Rose Bio Atinga who is the Chairperson of the Central Disciplinary Board and Nantogmah Yakubu Aggrey, Chief Superintendent of Police in-charge of the Rapid Deployment Unit were the trial officers of the service enquiry whose verdict led to Tehoda’s dismissal.
The two have been implicated for their roles in the dismissal of DSP Gifty Tehoda as Head of Commercial Crimes Unit of the Ghana Police service.
