An Accra High Court has set November 19, 2018, to decide the fate of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Appeatu, for disobeying the court’s order for police officers to leave private properties.

The same court would also rule on an application seeking to overturn the conviction of the IGP as filed by the Deputy Attorney General,

The IGP could be asked to pay a fine or serve a jail term if the court sentences him.

He could also escape both if the application filed by the deputy Attorney General finds favour with the court.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported the courts have found the IGP guilty of contempt.

This was after two citizens Samuel Aggrey Jnr and Augustine Gyekye told the court that the IGP had willfully disobeyed orders to provide security for the execution of a court order for the sale of a 12 block flats belonging to them.

This case has traveled from 1988 when a woman, Mrs Aggrey (now deceased), filed the case against REDCO Company limited for non payment of some money owed her.

REDCO allegedly gave out the property to the Ghana Police Service to house some of its officers.

The applicants then went back to court to seek an order for the police to vacate the property and rather help execute the High Court’s order to sell the facility but the police reportedly failed to do that and instead claimed ownership of the property.

The lawyers then filed another case citing the IGP for contempt.

They argued that once the flat was in the custody of the court, it was illegal for anyone to sell or buy the property and that the police should have done due diligence.
