Government, through the Minister of the Interior, has extended the working period of the committee probing the Ejura disturbances by one week.
This follows a request by the 3-member Justice Koomson Committee to enable it complete its work.
The committee was expected to conclude its work today, but it indicated yesterday there are more testimonies to be taken, which makes an extension critical.
The Committee has so far taken testimonies from about 10 witnesses including journalists, Police and military officers as well as political appointees in the jurisdiction of the incident.
Meanwhile, the family of the deceased social activist who was expected to appear before the Committee today has served notice they will not appear due to their doubts about the outcome of the committee’s work based on its performance so far.
