The Ghana Police Service has served notice to counsel for interdicted DSP Gifty Mawuenyegah Tehoda, embroiled in the cocaine-turned-baking soda scandal, she will not be reinstated now.

The embattled police woman was “unconditionally acquitted and discharged” for lack of evidence on Thursday after a series of adjournments in a mysterious case involving cocaine exhibit swap at the Police Headquarters. She has been charged for abetment of crime and stealing of cocaine.

Her lawyer, Oliver Dzeble, is suing the Police Administration for failing to reinstate his client immediately as a deputy head at the Commercial Crimes Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department after her acquittal.

However, the head of administration at the Ghana Police Service, COP Rose Bio Atinga, has called the bluff of the lawyer, adding failure to reinstate DSP Tehoda is due to an ongoing service enquiry into the matter. “I’m sorry to disappoint her lawyer,” COP Atinga told Accra-based Joy FM. “It appears he doesn’t know what he is talking about. The offenses she’s facing is entirely different from what she is being tried from our service enquiry. We are not trialling her on the same grounds as she was put before court.”

COP Atinga added: “The lawyer should give us a break. He should not threaten us. We are not frightened.”

Lawyer Dzeble stressed he is ready for a showdown with the police administration in court. He said his client should be reinstated with all benefits due her while serving her interdiction.

“We are in a democratic State where the rule of law prevails. I can’t order my client to be reinstated, but I believe I can by invoking the jurisdiction of the court. The application is already before the court – the issue of reinstatement with full benefits,” he stated.
