Court Rescinds CID Boss, Another Bench Warrant

A High Court in Accra has rescinded a bench warrant issued for the arrest of the Director General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Director of Legal Affairs of the Ghana Police Service.


This followed an appearance by Superintendent of Police Sylvester Asare before the court to apologise for the absence of both senior police officers on previous occasions  in a contempt of court case initiated against the police.


Superintendent Asare also informed the court that the police have released the vehicle at the centre of contempt proceedings to the applicant as a show of good faith and a measure to purge themselves of contempt.
