CID has violated Karbo’s privileges as MP – Ras Mubarak
Member of Parliament for Kumbungu in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak says it is unlawful for the Police CID to invite the Lawra legislator, Anthony Abayifa Karbo for questioning without recourse to the Speaker of Parliament.
He raised the issue earlier on the floor of parliament on Thursday following the invitation of Karbo by the Police CID.
According to Mubarak, Parliamentarians are not above the law, but “arrests or invitations must be within the law” saying his colleague’s privileges as MP have been grossly violated.
Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has invited deputy Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon. Anthony Abaayifa Karbo to assist in investigations in the Kwesi Nyantakyi case.
It is not immediately known whether Mr. Karbo is implicated in the ongoing investigations but reports say the MP for Lawra is seen in the yet-to-be-released video by Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas negotiating for deals on behalf of the presidency.
The Lawra MP is the second named official in the Anas Aremeyaw investigations that has implicated GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi.
