Lawyers for the Inspector-General of Police in the leaked tape saga have challenged claims by chairman of the Parliamentary committee which probed the matter Samuel Atta Akyea that members are divided over the findings of the report.

The Abuakwa South lawmaker claims some members of the committee do not agree with the recommendations and findings of the report despite the fact that all members except him signed the final report submitted to Parliament.

“What happened has fully confirmed our nightmare that the chairman had his own agenda, he was on a frolic of his own way aside the remit of the committee and we have been vindicated,” lead Counsel for the IGP Professor Kwame Gyan told Joy News on Monday July 1,2024.

He further noted: “In the practice of the House, the Chair appointed by the Speaker has no original vote, the chairman’s vote is only a casting vote if there was a tie, and there wasn’t. So afar as we are concerned this report is a unanimous report. We know he’s part of the machinations by some unscrupulous elements who have an insatiable appetite to be IGP”.

The Committee’s report among cited all three offices heard on the tape COP George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Asare and Superintendent Gyebi for professional misconduct and went ahead to refer two of them to the privileges committee for lying to the committee when they appeared before them.
