Civil Society Group, One Ghana Movement is demanding the immediate release of the unedited video footage of the interrogation of Modern Ghana Deputy Editor while he was in the National Security custody.
This would prove the Security Council’s denial that Emmanuel Ajarfor Abugri was tortured as he alleged following his release from detention.
In a statement signed by the movement’s convener, Emily Kanyir Nyuur, the Movement believes the only way the denial of torture by National Security can be accepted is if the public is allowed access to the video footage of what transpired during the detention.
It noted that an assessment of Ajorfor by doctors on July 3 indicates the possibility of battery. This in their view does not rule out the possibility of torture as being propagated by some media reports.
