The Ghana Police Service has given details on why they didn’t ensure law and others in parliament following the brawl between lawmakers on Monday night.
Recall the Members of Parliament got into a physical confrontation during a voting session on e-levy and this triggered many Ghanaians to criticize them.
The Police Service was also questioned by Ghanaians on why they failed to appear in the house to call them to order.
Well, the security service has released a statement saying it’s not their responsibility to call lawmakers to order but the Marshal of Parliament.
It noted that the Marshal of Parliament is the only authorized security to handle security regarding the chamber and there’s a constitution term on that.
Part of the statement reads, “The legal position is that the Police have no authority to enter the Chamber of Parliament to undertake any law enforcement venture. Any such act will be in the contravention of the laws of the country.”
“We have however initiated steps to engage the clerk, Marshal, and leadership of Parliament to fashion out a more proactive way of supporting Parliament in this regard within the confines of the laws of the country.”
