He was therefore sent before the Grater Accra Tribunal after being charged with conspiracy to steal a weapon and ammunition.
However, the case was later withdrawn after investigations found that the weapon and ammunition were not obtained from the police officer.
The incident, which happened in 2008, saw Mr. Jalil interdicted, with his suspension continuing till date.
But early in April this year, the High Court ordered that the officer be reinstated with his accumulated salaries and allowances paid to him at the prevailing bank rates.
Unfortunately, though, the Police Administration has so far failed to comply with this court order.
Mr. Jalil says he will fight until his reinstatement is effected, whiles also threatening to bring a contempt suit against the IGP.
