Astute Businessman, Dr Kwabena Duffour has run to the court to seek an interlocutory injunction to restrain the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) from ‘harassing’ him over the collapse of UniBank.

The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana is in court seeking an interlocutory injunction to restrain the Ghana Police Service over what he describes as “unlawful threats and harassment” following an invitation from the Crime Investigation Department (CID) last week.

Information that reached GhanaNewsPage.Com indicate that the CID wrote to Dr Dufour to invite him on January 8, 2020 to assist with investigations into the collapse of UniBank Ghana Limited.

He was to assist the Special Investigation team of the CID look into the allegation of money laundering and abetment of stealing and money laundering in UniBank leading to its collapse.

Dr Duffour who is not happy at the invite, has through his Lawyer, Simon Animley, written back to the Special Investigation team to draw their attention to the fact that he ceased to be the director of UniBank way back in 2009 as he took an appointment as a Minister of Finance.

He thus sought “a perpetual injunction restraining the defendant, his servant, agents, privies and assigns whatsoever from interfering with plaintiff’s fundamental human rights.”

The plaintiff has, meanwhile, accused the police of threats of arrest, detention, humiliation, harassment and embarrassment in public which, he asserts, constituents to an infringement of his fundamental human rights as enshrined in the 1992 constitution of Ghana.

The plaintiff, Dr Kwabena Duffour was a former Minister of Finance and former governor of Bank of Ghana who had previously served as a board member of Unibank Ghana Limited.

He insists he has no connection whatsoever with the collapse of Unibank in 2018.
