Political interference in police affecting our work - DSP Effia Tenge
Political affiliations play a large role in inquiries and punishment proceedings of officials.
She disclosed that the police are disrupted by interference from influential people such as media personalities and politicians.
"If they are caught, let the law work. The interferences from all angles, be it political, be it wherever from people in authority...it affects our work so let's be guided," DSP Effia Tenge said on Accra FM.
She mentioned Okada riders who run errands for these people tend to interfere in the prosecution process.
