No Police Officer would be shielded if found culpable of extrajudicial killing- Minister

Minister for Interior Ambrose Dery has disclosed that no police officer would be shielded if found culpable of extrajudicial killing.

He was speaking when he appeared before parliament to answer some questions.

He was answering questions from the Builsa North MP and Ranking Member for the Committee on Defense and Interior James Agalga, on the killing of some police officers suspected to be involved in the bullion van robberies.

The Minister, in his response, revealed that investigations have proved the suspects were indeed involved in the robberies.

“I am committed that the Police are accountable for their actions. Yes in Asawase a Committee was set and the actions were condemned. The police will be accountable and we are making sure that they are accountable.

“I am talking about this recent situation where there are Police and we have Police civilians. Let’s distinguish them. The suspects are Police dealing with Police. So let me put it on record and let Hon. Agalga know that I do not underestimate his commitment toward the peace and security of this country, no.

“So let me emphasize that the Police cannot kill suspects wantonly and get away with it, no,” the Interior Minister stressed.
