The Human Rights Court has adjourned the contempt application filed by former Deputy Head of the Police Commercial Crimes Unit; DSP Gifty Tehoda brought against two top police officials.
The court presided over by Justice Kofi Essel Mensah adjourned the case to February 7 because counsel for the two police officials were not in court today.
The Judge has therefore directed that the two officials be served with a hearing notice through their legal department.
The two officials are Nantogmah Yakubu Aggrey, Chief Superintendent of Police in charge of the Rapid Deployment Unit who was the trial officer of the Service Enquiry which led to Tehoda’s dismissal, and Commissioner of Police Rose Bio Atinga, the Chairman of the Central Disciplinary Board.
DSP Gifty Mawuenyega Tehoda is alleging the two officials undermined the authority of the High Court by proceeding to conduct a Service Enquiry when the applicant had served them with copies of a suit challenging her interdiction by the Police Service.
