IGP Dampare sued by 40 Police Chief Inspectors

IGP Dampare sued by 40 Police Chief Inspectors

A squad of 40 Police Chief Inspectors have taken to court to pursue legal action against IGP George A. Dampare over delayed promotions. These inspectors claim the refusal of the IGP to promote them is unjustified.
Reports say a writ has been filed at the Kumasi High court by the legal representatives of these police officers.
These officers stated that they had been due a number of promotions in the service which aimed at granting special amnesty to police officers who had obtained degrees, after they were enrolled into the service.
They also said that in spite of their service for 25 to 30 years, the administration had left them out and promoted junior officers under the special amnesty. However, they have not been granted entry to the Police Academy where they would be promoted to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).
The 40 officers are therefore pleading their case in court to be promoted to their rightful ranks by the Inspector General of Police, grant them access to the Police Academy, and also to be compensated for the loss of income they incurred after being denied promotions into the academy.
This follows several developments in a scandal involving a Police Commissioner identified as George Alexander Mensah and a Politician whom were being recorded on a phone to be plotting the removal of IGP George Akuffo Dampare.
