GJA Calls On Police To Investigate Threats Against Journalists


The Ghana journalists Association is calling on the police service to urgently investigate threats against journalists in the country.

The call comes after death threats were issued to freelance journalists, Manasseh Azure Awuni by supposed political fanatics over an opinion piece he published recently.

The GJA said, it condemns all of such schemes against journalists who are discharging their duties rightfully in accordance with country's constitution.

The GJA indicated a statement totally condemning such barbaric contemplation, machination, orchestration, plot and scheme, whether individually inspired or collectively conspired, to kill a journalist for discharging a lawful mandate guaranteed by the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana.

The person who threaten Manasseh said the journalists must be minded about the death of Amed Suale before writing any article.

According to the GJA, the growing level of intolerance in the country's body politic and severity of the words contained in the threat requires that the police get to the bottom of it.

The GJA also urged the police to provide protection for Manasseh and other journalists across the country whose lives have been threatened due to their work.
