BNI: Statement On Montie FM Saga Worrying

Security Expert Dr. Kwesi Anning has raised questions about the statement from the BNI seemingly throwing cold water on the death threat on judges by two radio panelists on Accra-based Montie FM.

The BNI in a statement Thursday said the two individuals are not capable of carrying their threat against judges.

“At the interrogation, the two [2] suspects admitted making those statements and acknowledged that their remarks were regrettable and unfortunate.

“Further checks by the BNI have however established that the suspects were incapable of carrying out their pronouncements but did so in a show of needless bravado,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has formally written to the panelists and the owner of the station to appear before it next week over the threat.

Speaking to Starr News, Dr. Anning who is the Director of Research at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre said the BNI does not sound convincing in their statement.

“History has shown us that those who make the incitements and threats are not the same people who carry out the action. When the BNI pronounces judgment that these people, based on their assessment, do not have the ability to carry out their action, are they only talking about the two individuals involved or their possible networks in which these statement were meant as a signal that this is a tolerable, acceptable behavior.

“When they have been left off the hook because it was needless bravado, when does needless bravado translates into actual action, and if it does, who is held culpable?” he inquired.
