The deportation of the three South African ex police officers who were arrested on terror grounds has caused an uproar among many Ghanaians. Former Local Government Minister under the Kuffuor Regime Captain(rtd) Nkrabea Effah Dartey has shared his thoughts on this development saying the Government can’t be blamed for the deportation of these three men.
Speaking to Ghanapoliticsonline.com, Mr Dartey said ” there are two different sides to this whole South African ex police saga”
“When the three were arrested by the BNI, they were immediately charged with unlawful training. It’s difficult to support the BNI with this charge hence the easy bailing of these three men” he said
He continued that, the other side to this issue has to do with immigration which the Government was right to deport them. You can’t blame the Government he added.
As we all know, there are different type of visas that is required for a foreigner to set foot into the country and each type of visa has its purpose, So therefore the Government per the immigration law can stress on the fact their visa was not for working and if they are earning revenue they can be deported. he said.
The (rtd) Captain ended by saying that apart from this two explanation, the whole issue has been politicized and it’s difficult to speak much on it.
