Consumer Agency Wants Embassies To Refund Bounced Visa Fees

Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) is threatening a demonstration should government refuse to address issues of unfair treatment meted out to Ghanaians at the various embassies within twenty-one working days.

The CPA also wants huge visa fees charged Ghanaians to be refunded to them if they are refused Visas by the embassies.

Citing various embassies such as the American Embassy, Canadian High Commission as well as the British High Commission as culprits, the CPA added that the treatment meted out to Ghanaians is an infringement on the rights of individuals and must not be tolerated.

Addressing a press conference in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer of the Consumer Protection Agency, Kofi Kapito Wusu-Hene said government must immediately address the issue within the twenty one days to avoid a protest by them.

“To my fellow Ghanaians, if you don’t hear anything proper from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I am urging Ghanaians please, you should demonstrate peacefully, to let them know that in Ghana they cannot infringe upon our rights.  So this is where I am pleading with Ghanaians,” he said.
