Five police officers from the East Legon Police station, in Accra, have  been accused of being accomplices in a $160,000-gold fraud case being investigated by the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards Bureau.

The officers are alleged to be part of a syndicate that includes some unlicensed gold dealers who reportedly sold gold to a French man, Atrous Yazid and his partner, and stole the gold back before the buyers could leave the country.

"Soon after we paid the money, three policemen in uniform, and two others in civilian clothes, jumped on us beat my friend took the gold from us and put us in cells for one day,"

Yazid and his business partner say they are frustrated even though the PIPS Bureau have taken up the matter.

This is coming at a time when there are continuing reports of police involvement in crime.
