The management of La Beach Resort has been accused of operating a private cell into which they allegedly hold suspected offenders at the beach before handing them to the Police.

Eric Nii Dade Luttterodt Akkulpleka Kwaku Akossa alias Ras Kwaku and Mensah Quarshie, all manufacturers and hawkers of artifacts at the beach, narrated how they suffered inhuman and degrading treatment at this ‘kangaroo cell, allegedly operated by Mr. Larry Mensah, a member of the management of the beach. Lutterodt 39, Akosua 26 and Quarshie 27, told the Public Agenda newspaper that on separate occasions each of them had been bundled into the cell by operatives acting on the instructions of Mr. Mensah, for their inability to produce selling permits upon demand.“Earlier, operatives of Larry came for my wares because I was later unable to produce a permit.

Later I was arrested and kept for about three hours upon the instructions of Larry where I was put in about 10:34a.m and was released at about 1:00pm following pleas from my uncle. I’ve been at this beach over the past 11 years,” Lutterodt revealed. He said following his release, he was made to sign an undertaking that he would be of good behaviour.

But in a separate interview with the Public Agenda newspaper, Mr. Mensah refuted the allegations, describing his accusers as “galam sey” people who have become a nuisance to holiday makers at the beach; engaging in all manner of crimes such as pick-pocketing, stealing of mobile phones and monies and illegally ferrying people into the beach using unapproved routes.
