Sosu is out of the country for Parliamentary assignment – Speaker Bagbin tells Police

Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, is believed to have written to the Police Administration notifying them that, Madina MP Francis-Xavier Sosu is out of the country on Parliamentary business.

On Monday morning, the troubled MP was supposed to appear in court, but he didn’t.

The Kaneshie District Court was informed by Police Prosecutor ASP Sylvester Asare that the Speaker had sent a letter indicating that the MP was out of the jurisdiction.

As result, the case was adjourned until November 16.

On October 25, the human rights lawyer led demonstration to demand that his constituents’ deplorable roads  be fixed.

Mr Sosu is accused of unlawfully blocking a public highway and causing destruction to public property.

There has been lot of back and forth between the MP, Parliament, and the Police since the demonstration.

The MP has resisted Police arrest, citing articles 117 and 118 of the Constitution as justification.

Speaker Alban Bagbin had previously written to the Police Service, stating that he would be unable to release the MP to assist with investigations.

After failing to apprehend the MP for allegedly breaching the law, the police obtained criminal summons  against him.
