The Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Inspector Juliana Obeng, Speaking to the Times yesterday said the situation had compelled the hospital authorities to transfer some of the bodies to the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital Mortuary.

To solve the problem, the Police Hospital will from Tuesday February 14, begin disposing of all such bodies through mass burial. There hospital is therefore giving relatives and the public who have deposited their dead bodies at the hospital mortuary up to February 14 (valentineís day) to collect themĒ, she stressed. Inspector Obeng said failure to collect the bodies would compel the hospital to embark on mass burial.

Inspector Obeng lamented the failure of relatives to claim bodies of their dead even when announcement were made and appealed to the public to take the announcement seriously.
