AUDIO: NDC releases audio alleging AG coached Jakpa to implicate Ato Forson

In a stunning turn of events, the Attorney General (AG), Godfred Yeboah Dame, is accused of coaching Richard Jakpa, a crucial witness, to implicate Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson in a high-profile legal matter. The NDC has made this allegation in a 16-minute audio recording that it has released.

The revelation of this audio has stirred enormous controversy and raised issues about the integrity of the judicial procedures against Dr Forson, who is facing allegations of causing financial loss to the state in relation to the procurement of ambulances.

According to the audio, which allegedly captures the witness and the AG speaking, the witness was given advice on how to present his evidence in a way that would support Dr. Forson’s guilt.

This development comes amid ongoing legal battles where Dr Forson, a former Deputy Minister of Finance and a current Member of Parliament for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam, is accused of authorizing payments for defective ambulances, which the prosecution claims resulted in financial loss to the state.

The NDC has highlighted several key excerpts from the tape that they argue demonstrate clear attempts by the AG to influence the witness’s testimony.

Addressing the press on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, the National Chairman of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, asserted that the tape reveals a coaching session designed to influence Jakpa’s court testimony.

He emphasised that the alleged coaching was intended to shape Jakpa’s statements to implicate Dr. Forson.

The controversy began when Jakpa, the third accused in the trial, alleged that he had been pressured to provide testimony detrimental to Dr. Forson.

This tape, according to the NDC, substantiates Jakpa’s claims and raises serious questions about the conduct of the AG in this high-profile case.
