The UNESCO Representative to Ghana, Abdou Rahamane Diallo, speaking during a regional consultative meeting on the safety of journalists in Kumasi says the government of Ghana must ensure the perpetrators are brought to book.
“We urge Ghana to inform us [UNESCO] on the status of the killing of Ahmed Suale. We just heard from the Deputy Minister of Information on updates of these investigations, and we are following and encouraging that efforts be pursued to make sure that the perpetrators are arrested and brought to the book.”
A deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide speaking at the same event assured that the government is working with security agencies to track persons behind the murder of Ahmed Suale.
“Ghana has slipped on the World Press Freedom Index and lost its place of pride as the best-ranked country. Our drop has been attributed to most commentators to the unfortunate death of Ahmed Suale. The government has been firm in its support to law enforcement agencies to crack these and many other criminal cases that are yet to see any meaningful investigations.”
Family calls for justice
The family of Ahmed Hussein Suale had earlier expressed disappointment with the government and security agencies over their failure to find his killers.
According to them, the government has not treated his death with much seriousness almost a year after the incident.
