The Ghana Police Service has taken on British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson, for her public remarks on the arrest of #FixTheCountry convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor.
The police service in a statement said her comments on the matter, which came in a tweet, were “either a biased or uninformed position.”
It feels the comments were “intended to tarnish the reputation of the Ghana Police Service and that of our Country.”
“What is more, we consider your tweet a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 which enjoins diplomatic missions not to interfere in the internal affairs of their host country,” the police added.
Harriet Thompson’s tweet said: “Oliver Barker-Vormawor, convener of #FixTheCountry movement, arrested again, I understand [it’s] for a motoring offence [and he’s currently] on his way to court. I’ll be interested to see where this goes…”
The comments came after Barker-Vormawor was arrested for careless and inconsiderate driving and non-observance of road markings at the East Legon tunnel in Accra.
Mr. Barker-Vormawor pleaded not guilty and was granted bail by the court.
