The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has been petitioned to probe deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor, over corruption claims made against them.

A group that calls itself Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana (DYMOG) thinks the corruption allegations by popular musician, Kwame A-Plus, and the subsequent revelations that the police, which investigated the matter, may have covered up for the two presidential staffers, demands that CHRAJ takes up the matter.

“It has become necessary for your outfit to trigger [an] investigation into the said matter following a leaked tape which captures a dialogue during the investigations by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service. The leaked tape was a phone conversation between Mr. Kwame Asare (A Plus) and an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mrs Tiwaa Addo – Danquah.

“DYMOG is of the firm [belief] that, the emergence of the leaked tape has made it necessary for an independent body to conduct full fledge investigations into this matter because,

a. The Credibility of the Ghana Police Service is in possible tatters so far as the emergence of this tape is concerned.

“b. Secondly, the authenticity of the final investigation report released earlier by the CID, which cleared Mr. Asenso Boakye and Mr. Abu Jinapor is in a state of immense and intense incredulity,” DYMOG said in the petition.

A-Plus protest

Kwame A-Plus

The Criminal Investigations Department of the Police Service last week described as baseless, a claim of corruption against the deputy Chiefs of Staff by popular musician Kwame Asare Obeng also known as A-Plus.

Director General of the CID, COP Bright Oduro, in a statement, said the report indicated that the evidence provided by A Plus to back his claims were “baseless, unsubstantiated and lacks credibility”.

However, an audio thought to be excerpts of a conversation between A-Plus and a female investigator sought to downplay the CID report and suggested a cover-up by the police to protect the two public officials.

Meanwhile, Myjoyonline.com is yet to confirm if CHRAJ has received the petition.

Below is the full DYMOG petition which Myjoyonline.com has chanced upon:

Accra.

Dear Commissioner,

PETITION TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGED CRIMES OF CORRUPTION AND THIEVERY LEVELLED AGAINST DEPUTY CHIEFS OF STAFF; MR. FRANCIS ASENSO-BOAKYE AND MR. SAMUEL ABU JINAPOR, BY KWAME ASARE OBENG (A-PLUS)

The Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana on behalf of the teeming youth in the country writes to your highly esteemed outfit to investigate the infamous alleged crime of thievery and corruption perpetrated by the Deputy Chiefs-of-staff Mr. Asenso Boakye and Mr. Abu Jinapor. These allegations were made by Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng (A Plus) a musician and a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

It has become necessary for your outfit to trigger an investigation into the said matter following a leaked tape which captures a dialogue during the investigations by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service. The leaked tape was a phone conversation between Mr. Kwame Asare (A Plus) and an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Tiwaa Addo-Danquah.

DYMOG is of the firm [belief] that, the emergence of the leaked tape has made it necessary for an independent body to conduct full fledge investigations into this matter because,

a. The Credibility of the Ghana Police Service is in possible tatters so far as the emergence of this tape is concerned.

b. Secondly, the authenticity of the final investigations report released earlier by the CID, which cleared Mr. Asenso Boakye and Mr. Abu Jinapor is in a state of immense and intense incredulity.

In the spirit of Articles 218 and 287 of the 1992 Constitution, we hereby petition CHRAJ to investigate and establish the following;

1. Whether or not the claims by Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng (A plus) are true

2. Whether or not the investigations of the CID of the Ghana Police Service on this matter is a true reflection of what transpired.

3. Whether or not the voices of Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng (A Plus) and Mrs. Tiwaa Addo Danquah captured on the tape are originally theirs or not.

We believe, your outfit will bring clarity and finality to this matter.

DYMOG also pledges to corporate with the Commission to bring justice to this matter.

Please find attached our evidence of the voice recording on a CD ROM labeled “DYMOG EXHIBIT”.

Yours faithfully,

Edward Tutor.

Executive Convener.
