In the ongoing ambulance purchase trial, Richard Jakpa, the third accused, has levelled serious accusations against Attorney-General (A-G) Godfred Yeboah Dame.

Jakpa alleged in open court that the AG had approached him multiple times, seeking his assistance to implicate Minority Leader and former Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.

Richard Jakpa, who is reported  to have made this claim during court proceedings on Thursday, May 23, 2024, stated that the Attorney General called him at odd hours to get his cooperation.

During cross-examination by Dr Forson’s counsel, Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe had admonished Jakpa to provide direct answers instead of evading questions and wasting the court’s time.

In response to the judge’s caution, Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame accused Jakpa of defending the Minority Leader. This prompted a fiery reaction from Jakpa, who claimed the A-G had repeatedly contacted him at odd hours to build a case against Dr. Forson.

“The A-G has on several occasions engaged me at odd hours to help him make a case against A1 and I have evidence for that…If he pushes me, I will open the Pandora’s box. I don’t understand why the A-G will accuse me of defending A1 when I’m here to defend myself, ” Jakpa fumed in court.

“If he pushes me, I’ll open the Pandora’s box. I have evidence to all this,” a visibly angry Richard Jakpa indicated to the court.

The Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, appeared visibly shocked and angered by these revelations as the courtroom drama unfolded.

 

 

Sammy Gyamfi’s Remarks After today’s trial

The NDC’s National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi has revealed that the Attorney General, Godfred Dame is scheming to jail the Minority Leader, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson at all costs.

According to Sammy Gyamfi, this emerged during the cross-examination of the third accused person, Richard Jakpa during the continuation of the ambulance case on Thursday, May 23.

Speaking to the media moments after Thursday’s court proceedings, Mr Gyamfi disclosed the overtures being made by the AG and the calls to the third accused person at odd hours all in an attempt to get incriminating testimony against the Minority Leader.

“We have times without number explained why we think that Hon Ato Forson is innocent. And that this case is needless. The minority leader has opened his case and closed it. Currently, the 3rd accused is being cross-examined by lawyers for a minority leader who is the first accused.

“We were all in court to monitor the proceedings, but we were shocked to the marrow when the 3rd accused under cross-examination disclosed to the court that the Hon Attorney General has been reaching out to him, calling him over the phone that he has reached out to him and met him in person.

“That the Attorney-General has been asking to give false testimony to the court and skew his testimony in such a way that corroborates the AG, against the first accused so that the first accused can be convicted and jailed. He said this in open court.”
