Sir John’s action defies normal legal procedure – MTTU

The Northern Regional branch of the Motor Traffic Transport Unit (MTTU) has condemned the actions of the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie’s decision to tow the mangled car of Dr. Bawumia for private forensic investigations.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, in an earlier interview, had indicated that he had ordered an independent forensic investigation to be conducted on the cause of the accident which occurred on Sunday.

According to him, the incident was masterminded by the government and National Security.

In an interview with Citi News however, the Northern Regional MTTU Commander, Supt George Blewushi lamented that the action of the NPP stalwart defied “normal legal procedure.”

“What I know is that if there is an accident at a place, the vehicle should be sent to the nearest police station. If the car does not get to the police station, how they would get an accident report to get claims?”

He indicated that “if somebody is saying he doesn’t trust the Police then I don’t know the educational level of that person.”

According to him, although the police did not examine the vehicles at the accident scenes, there was the need for them to pass on their findings to the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority (DVLA) for further investigations.
