The Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has added its support to calls for an independent investigation into the assault on Citi FM’s Caleb Kudah by National Security operatives.
The PPP says it is hopeful that the investigation will bring the perpetrators to book once they are found culpable.
The party said in a statement that it is “worried about the incessant brutalities that the Police and some members from the National Security mete out to innocent citizens in this country especially journalists.”
It further called for the installation of CCTV cameras in all interrogation rooms for supervision of security personnel interrogating suspects, and the implementation of recommendations from the Emile Short Commission.
“To prevent future brutalities on persons in custody, CCTV cameras should be provided in all interrogation rooms for supervision and make it a punishable offence for any security personnel who interrogates a suspect outside of such camera fitted interrogation rooms.”
“Implement fully aspects of the recommendations of the Emile Short commission report that government’s white paper admitted, and punish all persons who were deemed to have acted unprofessionally.”
