One issue that has dominated the news headlines for the past few days was the response of the Inspector General of Police to the British High Commissioner. From my viewpoint, I think that response wasn't needed. I would say that there was a lack of understanding of issues which could have been settled through a simple phone call. There is no need for a 4-page response to a harmless tweet.
What the High Commissioner tweeted was harmless. I believe she just expressed an opinion wanting to know what will be at the end of the case involving Baker Vormawor. This was what she tweeted. She said "Oliver Baker Vormawor, convener of #Fixthecountry movement, arrested again, I understand for a motoring offence on bus way to court. I'll be interested to see where this goes...".
What is harmful about this tweet? Is it now a crime for someone who wants to know the outcome of a case that many believe is politically motivated? What is her crime? She is a resident here in Ghana for the duration of her tenure. Whatever happens in Ghana affects her so she deserves to know. We should cut her some slack and allow her to rest.
