Police officials have teamed up with officers from the Postal and Courier Services Regulatory Commission (PCSC) to arrest 50 people illegally operating courier and postal services in Accra.
The exercise was in line with enforcing Article 649, section 10, of the Postal and Courier Services Regulatory Act 2003.
In a swoop, the team impounded motorcycles delivering such services illegally in areas such as the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, the Ministries and Osu, all in the Greater Accra Region.
Per a report by Ghanaiantimesonline.com, most operators who fell foul of the law were either oblivious of their obligations under the Act or had taken the Commission for a ride in registering and securing licenses for their businesses.
The public relations and consumer affairs manager for the PCSC, Nii Yeboah Edwin Burgesson, expressed worry over the proliferation of courier services without due licence from the PCSR, a situation he said, amounted to crime.
