Arrest Kennedy Agyapong now! - Minority charges

The Minority in Parliament has insisted Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong should be arrested over the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, an undercover investigative journalist with Tiger Eye P.I.

Speaking at a press conference Monday, former deputy Interior minister and MP for Builsa North James Agalga said: “we call on the law enforcement agencies to promptly cause Mr. Agyapong’s arrest and prosecute him for his actions.”

The Minority arrived on this conclusion following their interpretation of section 20(1) of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).

They quote, “a person who, directly or indirectly, instigate, commands, counsel, procures, solicit, or in any manner purposely aids, facilitates, encourages, or promotes, whether by a personal act or presence or otherwise, and a person who does an act for the purposes of aiding, facilitating, encouraging, or promoting the commission of criminal offence by any other person, whether known or unknown, certain, or uncertain, commits the criminal offence of abetting that criminal offence, and of abetting the other person in respect of that criminal offence.”

The Minority concludes that “...Mr. Agyapong appears to bear some criminal responsibility for the death of Ahmed, and he also bears criminal responsibility for instigating the public to beat up Ahmed and cause harm to Mr. Anas for monetary reward.”

“Mr. Agyapong appears to have abetted several offences ranging from assault, causing harm, causing harm with the use of an offensive weapon, attempted murder and murder by instigating the public by reaching out to the public to visit the indicated violence on them. And by the operation of our law, the offence of abetting a crime through instigating violence is committed even if no member of the public lifts a finger in furtherance of the invitation.”
