BNI arrests Police investigator in Martin Amidu’s office for leaking documents

The Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) has arrested Detective Inspector Yaa Boakyewaa after Special Prosecutor Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu lodged an official complaint against her.

The suspect MyNewsGh.com gathered is currently in detention at the BNI.

Her arrest follows a complaint by Mr Amidu that she was leaking confidential information and documents to unauthorized persons which defeats the purpose of the Special Prosecutor’s office.

Mr. Amidu among other things, is demanding that the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu removes her from the Special Prosecutor’s office for exhibiting gross insubordination and impudence in his presence when she was marched to his office to sign a letter of receipt of her suspension letter.

“She continued rudely and very insubordinately and had the impudence to tell me in the presence of the Deputy Special Prosecutor, the Secretary to the Office, the acting Head of the Investigations Division, and a senior officer of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) that I had no right to address her as a Sergeant when she had been promoted to an Inspector.”

A letter earlier suspending her indefinitely from the office reads in part “by virtue of your conduct in converting purely confidentially collected intelligence by this Office which had not been discussed with the Special Prosecutor for any further action into petitions received by the Office, you facilities or leaked or enabled the divulging of those intelligence collections of this Office to persons not authorized to receive them while creating the impression that the collected intelligence constituted petitions received by this Office from the public”
