The Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says Parliament and the public must hold the Judiciary and the police accountable particularly in the wake of reported attacks on journalists.
According to him, there has been a distressing trend where cases reported to the police and presented in courts have stalled without visible progress.
“The phenomenon of attacks and intimidation of journalists is gaining notoriety in our republic. Data available to the Ministry of Information suggests that the trend is ascending. Increasingly, various actors in our society – state actors, non-state actors, political party operatives, assigns of businesses and everyday citizens are resorting to attacks and intimidation of journalists as a means of expressing their displeasure,” the Information Minister said.
