The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) has presented a proposal to parliament demanding a codified conditions of service.
The document which has been laid in parliament is seeking improved service condition and laid down code of conduct.
They also what parliament to clarify how the bureau will interrogate and detain suspects in line with the country's laws.
Ghana’s BNI has over the years come under serious public backlash in the way they go about their work; ie their mode of arrest, interrogation, etc.
Parliamentarians have confirmed receipt of the document which is expected to mature in 21 sitting days when the House reconvenes.
I’m sure the BNI will be the best institution to answer this question because they have come to Parliament seeking to get approval after 21 sitting days after it is laid, unless it is annulled by two-thirds of MPs they have a regulation and we have to submit a report to Parliament,” the chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee in Parliament Osei Bonsu Amoah told Accra-based Joy FM on Tuesday.
“We are convinced that the regulations are necessary. Don’t forget the Police Service has a regulation, the Prisons Service are preparing theirs and have reached advanced stage and the BNI thinks they have to bring theirs.”
OB Amoah further stated that the bureau have also spelt out the grounds for recruitment and dismissal and terms of conditions of service. “… It is good for the country and the service…,” the lawmaker said.
