Ghana Police cautions Captain Smart, Multimedia Group for breaching the lawMay 1, 2020
The Ghana Police Service has cautioned Broadcast Journalist Captain Godsbrain Blessed Smart and colleagues for what they term as breach of law by wearing the uniforms of the security agencies.
Captain Smart and his co-workers in celebrating the hard work of Ghanaian workers dressed up in security uniforms and took pictures which were posted on their social media handles as well as the official page of the Adom FM.
Reacting to the incident, the Police administration on their official Facebook page questioned why the journalists should not be taken on for breaching the law just like it would have been applied against anyone.
“Adom 106.3 FM a whole media house decides to breach the law in the name of May Day celebration, should this be encouraged? Should you not be arrested for breaching section 28 of the Police Service Act, 1970 (ACT 350)? It is not easy to merit the Police Uniform, please obey the law at all times.
All that a person/corporate body which wants to use the uniform has to is to officially ask for permission, which is granted in most cases”
