Passengers Duke It Out With Cops In Accra
Ghana Airways passengers stranded in Accra battled with police
at the company's headquarters in Kotoka International Airport
Ghana was banned from flying in the US last week. The FAA cited
poor maintenance and no permit as the reasons for grounding Ghana.
Since then, as ANN has reported, more than 800 stranded passengers
have piled up in Ghana Airways offices in Africa, the UK and the
The Ghanian Chronicle newspaper reports police received a call
that protestors were holding hostages at the airline's
headquarters, demanding compensation and accommodations.
The police action resulted in at least one injury. A 65-year old
man who said he was in the office simply to ask about
accommodations wound up in the hospital after apparently being
bludgeoned by officers.
In the meantime, Ghana Airways has again apologized to stranded
passengers. Airline executives said they had reached a lease
agreement on an aircraft that the company could operate while its
own small fleet remains grounded.
