The Police Administration has reinstated former East Legon Police Commander DSP Emmanuel Basintale.
His reinstatement took effect some two-weeks ago.
Five policemen including DSP Emmanuel Basintale were interdicted for allegedly swapping gold bars meant for the Green Global Resources Company Limited.
DSP Basintale and his colleagues subsequently threatened to sue the Police Service for defamation.
Their Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng in a press release stated that “recent events have informed us that the Ghana Police Service is unwilling to act within the confines of law and regulation in this matter but is very much inclined to subject our clients to further public ridicule in a very unfair manner.
“Our clients would be heading to the law courts to clear their names and reputations and for reinstatement. It has also become equally important to publicly refute the myriad publications caused by the Ghana Police Service and other persons.
The five wanted the Inspector General of Police to revoke their interdiction if no disciplinary proceedings have been instituted against them.
Meanwhile, the substantive case is still pending in court but the aggrieved managers of the mining company according to reports have flown out of the country; expressing their frustration with the slow pace of the investigations.
