Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) says it has not received any complaint from the assaulted Modern Ghana journalists, therefore, cannot step into the matter.
According to CHRAJ, they are ready to act on the matter if a complaint is lodged by the Modern Ghana journalist who maintained he was abused by personnel of the national security.
This development follows the alleged torture of two Modern Ghana journalists, Emmanuel Ajarfor and Emmanuel Britwum by National Security Operatives.
Editor of ModernGhana, Emmanuel Ajarfor said he was tortured and beaten by National Security Operatives while in detention following a raid of their office and their subsequent arrest.
Meanwhile, Mr Emmanuel Britwum has made a U-turn denying being tortured or saw his other colleague, Mr Emmanuel Ajarfor tortured when they were detained in the custody of National Security Operatives.
However, the National Security in a statement said there was no physical abuse on the suspect.
Speaking to Starr FM, the Commissioner of CHRAJ Joseph Whittal said :
- Arrest of journalists: I'm shocked by my colleague's U-turn on torture claims - ModernGhana editor
- Arrest of journalists: No one is above the law, we will push for justice - GJA
