Ambulance case: court admits “secret audio recording” in evidence

On Tuesday (11 June 2024), the 16-minute audio recording was played in open court but the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Yvonne Atakora Obuobisa, opposed the request for it to be tendered in evidence

The high court in Accra, presided over by a Court of Appeal judge, Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe, has ruled in favour of admitting into evidence, for what it is worth, the secret recording of a conversation between the Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, and the third accused person, Richard Jakpa in the ongoing lawsuit popularly known as the ambulance case.

On Tuesday (11 June 2024), the 16-minute audio recording was played in open court. After it was played, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Yvonne Atakora Obuobisa, opposed the request for the recording to be tendered in evidence.

The DPP argued that an insufficient foundation has been laid by lawyers for the first accused person to warrant inclusion of the recording into evidence in the criminal trial of Cassiel Ato Forson, Sylvester Anemana (now discharged) and Richard Jakpa.

“My lady will note that, by its own ruling, this court admitted into evidence this same recording that counsel seeks to tender in through cross-examination of the third accused,” the DPP said.

“In that motion for injunction and stay of proceedings, there was some relevance for which this court could admit to determine whether the Attorney General sought to implicate the first accused person through the evidence of the third accused.”
