Parliament to begin investigation into issues involving security agencies next week

Parliament will next week start an investigation into issues involving the state security agencies.

Prominent among issues are interferences by members of the state security agencies in Ghana’s 2020 elections; and the recruitment practices of the state security agencies between the period of 2013 and 2020.

The House would lay another Private Members’ Motion calling for an investigation into alleged interferences by some members of the security agencies and some vigilante groups before, during, and after Presidential and Parliamentary Elections since 1993 resulting in injuries and loss of lives and make consequential recommendations.

Furthermore, the House would also decide on whether to investigate the ethnic, gender and other sectional backgrounds of persons recruited into the security forces since 1993.

These were contained in the Business Statement of the House, for the Second Week Ending, 4th June, in the Second Meeting of the First Session of the Eighth Parliament, read on the floor of the House, by the Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
