The Inspector General of Police (IGP) John Kudalor, is to be hauled before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament soon, the Deputy Ranking member of the Committee, George Loh has disclosed.
The IGP when he appears before the House will be answering questions over the prolonged investigations by the Police Service after the PAC directed it to prosecute persons who have been indicted by the Auditor-General’s Report.
Hon. Loh made the disclosure while contributing to a discussion on Joy FM’s Ghana Connect programme which discussed a report by policy think-thank IMANI Ghana which reveals that about GHC 5 billion, have been lost over three due to financial irregularities in the public sector according to the Auditor General’s Report.
He expressed displeasure over the inability of the police to speedily investigate people who are found to have engaged in criminality.
“Even when we have been able to decide that this is criminal and we hand these people over to the police, or the police have come for them…there are some cases 11 years they say they are still investigating. So these all give fodder to people in the system to do all sort of things. We’ve even planned…but I think we’ve not done the IGP yet, but we want to haul him before the PAC to come and explain. Because you stay the night and go through reports and you are able to identify some people who have done something real wrong and invite the police or you ask that they are reported to the police and for 11 years nothing gets done.”
