Accra July 21, GNA – A
joint Military and Police taskforce to be deployed for anti-galamsey operations
are under a training programme on “Operation Halt Three” at the Bundase Military
Camp at Prampram in the Greater Accra Region.

The training and
deployment would seek to reverse the unbridled exploitation of the natural
resources.

The taskforce made up
of the Police, Army, Navy and Air force personnel would help salvage the polluted
water sources, farmlands and forests caused by the activities of the illegal
miners.

Speaking to the Ghana
News Agency on Friday at the training grounds, Major Gariba Pabi, the Public
Relations Officer of ‘Operation Halt Three’ said the two-week training
programme formed part of the President’s special initiative against galamsey.

He said the training
would equip the force to be on the same frequency before the commencement of
the operation as well as save lives of the individuals engaged in the activity.

Major Pabi said the
taskforce to be positioned at all illegal mining areas would not relent on its
purpose against illegal mining until the menace was halted.

He added that
“equipment impounded on the field would be handed over to the appropriate authorities
for further actions to be taken”.
