The Ghana Police Service has reminded the general public, particularly faith-based organisations to operate within the laws of the country and desist from publishing false news.
In a statement it issued to the public to remind all on the communication of prophecy, so far faith-based groups and individuals have complied with the law, thereby protecting the rights and freedoms of those who are normally affected by these prophecies, as well as fostering “a society free of needless panic, fear and alarm.”
According to the Police Service, which has christened December 27 as Prophecy Communication Compliance Day, the general public especially faith-based groups and individuals need to continue to be patriotic and abide by the law, to ensure that the prevailing state of law, order and security in our beloved country is maintained.
“The Police will like to remind the public that while we have the right to practice our faith and freedom of speech as guaranteed by our constitution and democratic values, we want to reiterates that the enjoyment of these rights are subject to respect for the rights and freedoms of others and for the public interest.
“As we have come to consider December 27th as Prophecy Communication Compliance Day, the Ghana Police Service is once again urging religious communities to practice their faith within the legal framework.
“In the spirit of the season, we wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.”
