Police to detain and prosecute the demonstrators’ leaders from Arise Ghana

The Ghana Police Service has served notice all organisers of Tuesday’s demonstration by Arise Ghana will be arrested and arraigned before court.

The police say they are taking that action as a result of the attacks and damage caused to public property.

The action, according to the law-enforcement agency, is in line with provisions of Section 3 of the Public Order Act, Act 491.

Tuesday’s demonstration dubbed #KromAy3Hye demo ended abruptly after police restrained the demonstrators from pouring onto Ring Road Central to March towards the Jubilee House.

Stones were pelted at the police, from persons accused by organisers as “agent provocateurs” planted within them by the same police, and tear gas were fired, that certainly from the police.

So far, 29 persons have been arrested.

“Available video footages of the event are being reviewed and all other persons identified for taking part in the attacks as well as inciting the violence will be arrested and brought to face justice,” the police said in a press release on Tuesday, June 28.

It observed that there is a “calculated falsehood” and “misinformation” being peddled by the leaders of the demonstration.

“We urge the public to disregard the untruths and treat them with the contempt they deserve, for the footages and images of the event speak for themselves.”

The organisers have, meanwhile, taken the second day of the protest to the El Wak Sports Stadium, where they will converge and March towards Parliament.
