The criminal investigations department of the Ghana Police Service have invited Mr. James Quayson, the NDC MP for Assin North who was recently stripped of his membership of Parliament by the Cape Coast High Court.
The CID’s invitation follows a complaint filed by the NPP’s Central Regional Secretary, Richard Takyi Mensah.
A source at the Police CID Headquarters says Mr. James Quayson has been served with a letter appear before it for interrogation.
He will either appear on August 3 or 6, 2021, the source added.
If found guilty in the criminal investigations, Mr Quayson could serve a prison sentence.
Quayson was on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, stripped of being an MP after the Cape Court High annulled the 2020 Parliamentary Election held in Assin North constituency and ordered for a fresh election to be held.
The Court, which was presided over by Justice Kwasi Boakye, restrained Mr Gyakye Quayson from holding himself as MP for the Assin North constituency.
