MPs are not above the law; stop shielding them – Ambrose Dery ‘berates’ Parliament

Must Read

Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery has taken a swipe at the leadership of Parliament for continuously shielding Madina MP, Francis-Xavier Sosu despite several attempts for him to assist in police investigations.

The MP is on a long-running battle with the security agencies for his role in a violent protest over bad roads in his constituency.

On two occasions, the arrest of the MP has proven futile after the youth of Madina thwarted the first arrest.

Subsequently, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin in a letter addressed to the police hierarchy refused to release Mr Sosu to assist in the said police investigations.

This has not sat down well with the Interior Minister who says no one is above the law irrespective of one’s political or social standing.

Speaking to Accra-based Joy News, Mr Ambrose Dery questioned the position of Parliament and urged the leadership of the House not to condone breaches of the law.

“I do not understand [Parliament’s] decision. However, through its decisions and actions, Parliament should not make those decisions capable of an interpretation to either make MPs come across as above the law or make us condone the breach.”
