Pressure Mounts On Presidency To Publish Ejura Committee’s …
The Akufo-Addo administration is facing growing pressure to make available copies of the Justice Koomson Committee report on the Ejura disturbances.
This follows a fresh request by some families of the youth who were killed during the June 29 clashes amid widespread concerns about the delay in the publication of the report.
“Earlier today, we, the families of the victims of the Ejura shootings, and the family of Ibrahim Anyass Mohammed, alias Kaaka, resolved to submit separate Right to Information requests to the Office of the President, and to the Minister of Interior, requesting access to the Report of the Ministerial Committee constituted at the request of the President to look into the Ejura Shootings.”

“With the above in mind, we have requested access to the report of the Ministerial Committee into the Ejura Shootings, in the hope that releasing the report for public discussion could kick-start the long-delayed process needed to provide justice for our families, and our community,” they added in a statement.
They explained that they took the action following the delay in making the report public.
“Despite repeated assurances by Government officials that the Report will be released expeditiously, including a claim by the Minister for Information that the Report will be released latest by the end of last week; no such steps have been taken. As a result, we have become apprehensive about the commitment of the Government to releasing the report, and to working towards justice for our families.”
