National security minister to brief parliament on terrorism, ex-gitmo 2

Parliament has summoned the Minister of National Security, Albert Kan-Dapaah, to appear before it to brief the house on steps Ghana is taking to combat terrorism.

Mr Kan-Dapaah is also expected to brief the house on the two former Guantanamo Bay prisoners: Muhammed Al-Dhuby and Muhammed Bin-Atef.

The Supreme Court in June described as unconstitutional the decision by former president John Mahama to accept into Ghana the two terror suspects.

The court in a 6-1 majority decision ruled the action by the then president was in breach of Article 75 of the constitution which required that all international agreements be brought before Parliament for ratification.
The meeting with the national security minister will be held in camera due to the sensitive nature of the issues.
This was disclosed by the Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu during the presentation of business for next week.

Also, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Charlotte Osei is expected to appear before Parliament next week.

Parliament has summoned her to brief the House about how much the Commission made from the controversial accreditation fees it charged journalists who covered the 2016 general elections.
