Godfred Dame must be prosecuted – NDC

Source The Ghana Report

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called for the immediate resignation and prosecution of the Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame.

The party’s demands follow the release of a 16-minute audio conversation between the Attorney General and the third accused person, Richard Jakpa, in the ongoing ambulance trial.

In the said tape, the Attorney General is heard coaching the third accused, Richard Jakpa, on what to say in court, with instructions aimed at discrediting the Minority Leader, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson, also an accused person in the ongoing ambulance trial.

After listening to the audio tape, the National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, tabled four demands as part of efforts to restore credibility to the Attorney General’s office and Ghana’s judicial system.

“The immediate and unconditional resignation or dismissal of Godfred Dame for bringing the high office of the Attorney General and the Minister of Justice into repute and public opprobrium. Mr Dame is not fit to hold himself out as Attorney General and Minister of Justice. He is unfit to be the leader of the Ghana bar,” Mr Nketia said amidst cheers from party members.

The NDC also called for the immediate prosecution of Godfred Dame for alleged violations of Ghanaian law, warning that President Akufo-Addo’s failure to do so would result in future legal action by an NDC-led government.

Additionally, the party seeks disciplinary proceedings against Mr Dame by the General Legal Council (GLC) and a publicly televised parliamentary inquiry into these allegations.

The party expects a parliamentary inquiry into other reports of judicial manipulations by Godfred Dame to censure him and prevent repetitions of such conduct.
