Leaked Tape Saga: Kan-Dapaah Invitation Inappropriate – Security Analyst

Source The Ghana Report

Security analyst Adam Bonaa has criticised the invitation of  National Security Minister Albert Kan-Dapaah to appear before the committee probing the leaked tape plotting the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare.

According to Mr Bonaa, the decision by the committee to call on the national security minister to speak on the investigation by the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) is unlawful as the process is against the Whistleblowers Act.

Mr Bonaa’s comment follows Mr Kan-Dapaah’s refusal to disclose the details of the NIB’s investigation.

Even though Mr. Kan-Dapaah appeared before the committee on September 13, 2023, he declined to submit the findings of the NIB.

The security analyst explained that Mr. Kan-Dapaah was not obliged to disclose the names of the actual people who doctored the original tape if NIB had been able to identify those people.

“We have the Whistleblowers Act, so whether you know who recorded, who didn’t record it and who leaked, it is inconsequential. The Whistleblowers Act protects these people. So if you go out there and take these people’s names, identity, if you have them, and you put them out into the public domain through Parliament, that will be an affront on the laws”.

“Anybody who does that, that would be criminal. For me, when I heard Atta Akyea calling for National Security, I asked, ‘Do we know what we are talking about’? It looks like somebody is not telling Atta Akyea and the committee that you can’t do that. The Americans will not do it; the British will not do it. No nation with proper security set up in a democracy will do that,” Mr Bonaa stated in an interview monitored by The Ghana Report on Starr FM.

The chairman of the ad-hoc committee, after meeting with the national security minister, indicated that the leaked audio tape had been doctored.

Senior police officers COP George Alex Mensah and Superintendent George Asare, who have been implicated in the leaked tape which captures plans to oust the IGP, claimed that the recording had been edited.
