Stop deporting arrested foreigners, jail them in Ghana – Gabby

A leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Gabby Otchere Darko has said foreigners who are arrested for engaging in illegalities in Ghana should be arrested and be made to face the laws in the country.

He said these persons should not just be deported after being arrested because Ghanaians who are arrested in foreign lands are imprisoned in those countries.

“We should not be quick to deport foreigners who break our laws. If a citizen would be imprisoned for a similar offence then first prosecute and imprison the convicted foreigner before deporting him after serving his sentence. They cannot be treated better than us,” he said in a tweet.

His comments come after 19 Burkina Faso nationals were arrested on the Gwollu stretch, about 807 km from the national capital Accra and deported.
