Interior Ministry – There’s No Regulation To Monitor Calls, Disregard The Rumors

The Ministry of Interior has debunked claims that the Ministry will be enforcing new communication regulations to monitor calls and social media platforms.

Messages have been going viral on social media platforms, particularly whatsapp, purporting that the Ministry was going to surveil calls; thus invading the privacy of the citizenry.

But in a statement signed by the Chief Director for the Ministry, Mrs. Adelaide Anno-Kumi; it stated emphatically that “there is no such new communication regulation and thus calls on the general public to disregard the news item . . . In as much as the safety, peace and security of citizens is our primary concern, we will not do anything tantamount to the invasion of the privacy of citizenry and an affront on the respect of the fundamental human rights of the citizenry.”

RE: NEW COMMUNICATION REGULATIONS CIRCULATING ON SOCIAL MEDIA

The Ministry of Interior’s attention has been drawn to a news item making rounds on social media which is alleging that, the Ministry will be enforcing a new Communications Regulation which will entail surveillance of calls and social media platforms by the Ministry of Interior.

The Ministry wishes to emphatically state that there is no such new communication regulation and thus calls on the general public to disregard the news item.

The Ministry wishes to assure the general public that, no one’s communication device, be it mobile hand device, Personal Computer etc. is connected to any system at the Ministry of the Interior.

In as much as the safety, peace and security of citizens is our primary concern, we will not do anything tantamount to the invasion of the privacy of citizenry and an affront on the respect of the fundamental human rights of the citizenry.

The Ministry therefore wish to state emphatically and unambiguously that, the news item is false and should be disregarded by the general public.

The Ministry takes this opportunity to wish the general public happy Easter celebrations.
Thank you.

Signed:
ADELAIDE ANNO-KUMI (MRS.)
CHIEF DIRECTOR
FOR: MINISTER FOR THE INTERIOR
