Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George has called out the Netherlands Ambassador to Ghana, Verheul Jeroen over the refusal of a visa to some legislators.
Mr Suhuyini who had earlier applied for Visa had disclosed that he was denied due to the fact that he is part of persons championing the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.
In reaction to the allegation, the Dutch ambassador said Mr Suhuyini could have contacted the embassy directly instead of taking to social media.
“If the visa applicant only spoke to us directly, instead of through the media, we could avoid a lot of misunderstandings and miscommunication in the (social) media. That’s why it is important to have diplomatic relations and bilateral embassies,” Mr Verheul noted.
In a rebuttal however, Sam George noted that the embassy failed to check the background of Mr Suhuyini, thus provided the “flimsy excuse of lack of social ties.”
He further stated that “Respect must be mutual and reciprocal. The choice of route is yours Sir. Choose wisely. Cheers.”
