The police service will not be pursuing any further criminal action against Lance Corporal Fredrick Amanor, the police officer who assaulted a lady at a Midland Savings and Loans branch in Accra.
He has subsequently returned to post.
The Director-General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu confirmed this in an interview on the Citi Breakfast Show on Monday.
ACP Eklu said: “internal disciplinary processes” are still ongoing after the assault which occurred in July 2018 but added that any individual aggrieved by the police’s handling of the case can head to court.
“If somebody is still not satisfied, he can go to court and look at it or revisit again but we have done what we are supposed to do be done as per the law.”
Fredrick Amanor was arrested and arraigned for assaulting a customer of Midlands Savings and Loans Company in 2018.
But the widely condemned act of police brutality did not result in any conviction in court because the case was discharged due to a purported lack of interest in the trial by the victim, Patience Osafo.
He is now back at post, according to ACP Eklu, who added that there was no cause for alarm.
