The Convention People’s Party (CPP) on Friday expressed disgust over recent attacks on the media in the country, and uncontrolled human rights abuse and freedoms of Journalists in the discharge of their constitutional duties.

It described such attacks and brutalities as “unfortunate, unacceptable and disgusting”, and called on the law enforcement agencies to prosecute perpetrators to deter others and to enable the media to work without obstructions and intimidations.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Sunyani, Mr Eben Agbenya, the Brong-Ahafo Regional Secretary of the CPP challenged the leadership of the various political parties in the country to halt what he described as “unnecessary interference” and allow the Police to prosecute their members who breached the law.

“The most dangerous crime in our country today is political crime. People killed, beat, maimed and harmed others in the name of partisan politics and nothing reasonable is done to them”, he observed.

Mr. Agbenya indicated that the media remained a major key actor and played essential role in consolidating the country’s democratic gains, and practitioners must therefore be allowed to work in an atmosphere of peace.
