Listen to article

The Minority Spokesperson on Communication, Mr Haruna Iddirisu has expressed disappointment at the decision of the Minister of the Interior, Mr Albert Kan Dapaah to refer recommendations by the Georgina Woode Committee on the 77 missing cocaine parcels to Government for appropriate action.

Speaking to JOY NEWS, Iddirisu questioned the capacity in which the Minister addressed the press conference, which was broadcast live Joy FM and

He said Mr Kan-Dapaah is a member of government and could not have addressed the conference in his private capacity.

The Committee investigated circumstances leading to the disappearance of the parcels on a vessel, MV Benjamin, important into the country on April 26 by a Venezuelan Gerardo Vasquez.

The Committee was also to establish the whereabouts of the drugs, said to value about 200-million United States dollars. However the Committee could not establish that and this, the MP for Tamale Central finds very disappointing too.

Iddirisu described the Committee's work and findings as of no effect and a vindication of the Minority's earlier calls for a bi-partisan Commission of Inquiry.
