Former deputy Power Minister, John Jinapor, whose house was raided by officials of the Police CID Friday morning has said his kids have been left traumatised by the swoop.
According to the MP, his entire house including his children’s rooms and bathrooms were ransacked by the security personnel, who had stormed the house in search of documents regarding the controversial AMERI power deal.
“They searched everywhere, my bedroom, kitchen, my children’s room, garage and everywhere possible, but I told them that I don’t have anything with me and that every document regarding the Ameri deal was left at the ministry,” he recounted in an interview with Francis Abban on Morning Starr Friday.
He added: “As we speak, my family is traumatised. Imagine a 6 and 8-year-olds going through a thing like this, they are very traumatised”.
Jinapor further noted that the search team seized his iPhone and insisted that he turns in his laptop to assist them with the investigations.
“They have taken my IPhone and asked that I bring my laptop too. I told them I don’t have a personal laptop, the one I use is a property of parliament and so I will go and ask the Speaker if he will allow me to go and give it to them. They have also asked that I report to the police station on Monday”.
A similar raid is reported to have taken place in the residence of former deputy attorney general Dominic Ayine.
The development comes after the home of former Power minister Kwabena Donkor was raided on Monday over the same AMERI deal.
