All military personnel in Wa barracks who were on duty on July 1, when some of them brutalised residents, with the exception of the Duty Officer, have been punished.
This was revealed after a 4-member committee tasked to investigate the assault in the Upper West Regional capital submitted its preliminary findings.
Three of them have been demoted from their current ranks to lower ranks.
hey are the Orderly, Guard Commander and the Sentry. The Orderly has been demoted from Staff Sergeant to Corporal whilst the Guard Commander and the Sentry have been demoted from Corporal to Private and Lance Corporal to Private respectively.
The trial of the Duty officer who is a Lieutenant will, however, commence later.
