President’s Security Detains TV crew
State Security Protecting Private Property? Accra, July 23, JoyOnline -- A crew of media personnel from TV Africa in Accra were on Friday arrested and detained by security personnel at the residence of President Kufuor, for taking shots of what has become known as Hotel Kufuor. The crew, made up of a reporter, cameraman and a soundman was apparently taking shots of the hotel for a story it was doing. The Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice on Friday held a news conference to register its displeasure of what it says is bad press over its investigations into the Hotel saga. The crew therefore went to the site to take shots of the hotel for that story where they were detained for about three hours. The crew has since being released.
