AMBULANCE CASE : Accra High Court thrown out request


The Accra High Court has rejected a request for an inquiry into the conduct of Attorney General Godfred Dame in the ongoing ambulance procurement case.

Presided over by Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, the court ruled that the request lacked legal basis.


This decision was one of four rulings delivered by the court on Thursday, June 6.

The inquiry was sought by the first accused and the third accused, Richard Jakpa, who alleged that the Attorney General had been calling him at odd hours to solicit testimony against Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.

The court also declined to declare the case a mistrial.


Dr. Ato Forson and Richard Jakpa are on trial for allegedly causing a financial loss of €2.37 million to the state through a contract to purchase 200 ambulances for the Ministry of Health.

The case has sparked controversy, with some individuals calling for the resignation of the Attorney General. The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has also entered the fray, releasing a 16-minute audio tape purportedly featuring a conversation between the Attorney General and Jakpa.


However, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has dismissed the claims made in the audio, describing it as “doctored and manipulated” with malicious intent.
