The Police do not have a policy of Denying Permits to Political Parties Says PRO Kujabi

on

by Ousman SillahASP David Kujabi, Police Public Relation Officer (PRO), in responding to the question whether they have a policy in place that restricts the United Democratic Party (UDP) from obtaining permit to hold rallies, said every political party has the right to stage rallies and to obtain a permit.The Police PRO told this reporter yesterday, Tuesday, 23 September, that he was even informed that the UDP’s request for a permit to hold a rally on Saturday, 27 September, has been approved.He disagreed with the position that the police have put a ban on the UDP to hold a rally.The Constitution has made it a right for a party to hold political meetings/rallies and should apply for permit from the police if they are to use a public address system (P.A System) to amplify voices.People have been making enquiries from Foroyaa on the position of the police following the publication of the vox pop on the issue of Police denial of permit on security grounds. ]]>
