CID raid: Kwabena Donkor runs to Speaker

Former Power Minister Dr Kwabena Donkor has indicated he would petition the Speaker of parliament over the search conducted in his house by personnel of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) because "due processes were not followed.”

Four officers of the CID of the Ghana Police Service led by an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) on Monday dawn stormed the Spintex residence of the former Minister who is currently the MP for Pru East.

The officers got to his private residence while he was still asleep. He is being investigated for willfully causing financial loss with regards to the AMERI deal.

The CID search, ClassFMonline.com understands, occurred for between two and three hours. His four pen drives and laptop were seized by the officers.

Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Joy FM on Monday July 24, Dr Donkor said: “I am waiting for my day in court, I have nothing to hide.”

“I will petition the Speaker because I am a sitting MP” and there is a certain protocol which has to be followed but has been breached.

He added: “They have muddied the waters” regarding the AMERI deal.
