Ghana TUC calls for inquiry into the attack on journalists

 

imagesAccra, Jan 15, GNA – The Ghana Trades Union Congress (TUC) has called for an inquiry into the attack on a Daily Guide photographer, Miss Gifty Lawson and others, covering court proceedings at an Accra Human Rights Court in Accra on Thursday.

     A statement issued and signed by Mr Kofi Asamoah, Secretary General of the Union and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Sunday said “information reaching the TUC suggests that not only were the journalists arrested, but in the process they were subjected to severe beatings.”

    It noted that they were also threatened with death by gun-toting officers of the BNI for doing no more than their duty as journalist.
