Businessman, Harris Owusu Ansu Gyeabour, who has unjustly been put on the Police wanted list has threatened to sue the Police service and seek damages if measures are not taken to immediately remove his name from the list.
According to a Demand Notice delivered to the Police CID by the businessman and his lawyer Monday, the police failed to ascertain whether he actually committed the offence the complainant filed against him before listing him on the wanted roll.
Mr. Ansu Gyeabour was put on the police wanted list last Friday.
The Demand notice sent to the police read: “We are insisting that the police service acted quite unprofessionally in the handling of the matter since the service failed to adhere to certain rules of engagement that demand that the service makes reasonable efforts as ascertaining certain things before making their publication public.
“We are bringing to bear that the service ought to have ascertained whether or not he had actually committed the said offence via. defrauded any person (complainant)”.
