Retired Detective Calls For Acceleration In Criminal Trials

Retired Head Detective, Mr. Frank Osei has attributed the numerous crimes in the country to failure of the police and judicial service to expedite investigation and trials.

Speaking to TV3, he noted that prosecuting and penalizing perpetrators of crimes will help reduce the rate of crimes the country is currently faced with.

“The people are not being tried earlier and we are not hearing results. We are not hearing about the man who killed his wife at Konongo, the man who killed his wife at Sefwi, the man who killed his wife in the Volta region. We want to hear that such men are sentenced to life imprisonment or sentenced to death, a man robbed some men and got 30years, that is what we want to hear.

“When they killed that small boy (Ishmael Abdalla), when the police were taking the two teenage suspects away, one of them threatened to deal with bystander upon his return. He had the idea that he will be returning.”

According to him, the criminal courts in the country aren’t enough to deal will the numerous pending cases.

“The police should be trained to speed up investigation. The Judicial service should try and have about 10 or 20 criminal courts to deal with such cases”, he said.

The country continues to record criminal cases day in and out despite no development in old ones but the police says it is in control and on top of issues.
