CID puts James Quayson’s investigations on hold

1 min read

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has put on hold plans to invite and interrogate the NDC’s 2020 parliamentary candidate for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson, whose entry into Parliament has been short-lived.

The CID had been petitioned by the Central Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Takyi Mensah over allegations that Mr. Quayson falsely declared that he owes allegiance to only Ghana while filing nomination to contest in the 2020 parliamentary elections.

Mr. Quayson was found guilty by the Cape Coast High Court last week, leading to the annulment of the elections in Assin North.

But Citi News sources within the CID said the investigations have been put on ice due to hints that, Mr. Quayson will appeal the judgement of the High Court.

The CID was petitioned to investigate Mr. Quayson’s participation in a number of activities in Parliament, including his participation in the election of the Speaker of Parliament, although the High Court in Cape Coast had barred him from holding himself as an MP at the time.
