Ambulance case: NDC’s alleged tape of Attorney General doctored, says NPP

The NPP said it remains resolute that the Attorney General never approached the third accused for any conversation, let alone request him to skew his testimony against first accused, Cassiel Ato Forson

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said the alleged tape recording of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame and the third accused, Richard Jakpa in the ambulance case is doctored.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday (28 May), the chairman of the NPP’s legal and constitutional committee, Frank Davies, said the party remains resolute that the Attorney General has never approached the third accused for any conversation, let alone request him to skew his testimony against first accused, Cassiel Ato Forson.

Davies said, “even though from the screenshots displayed, the alleged conversation is 26mins, the NDC schemed to play only 16 minutes. The question then is, where is the rest of the tape. Even in respect of what was played, it is apparent that there are repetitions, overlaps, incoherence, voice overs and distortions, demonstrating that, the NDC has spent these past days doctoring whatever tape they played. Even on the doctored tape, the Attorney General never requested the witness falsify, fabricate or concoct any evidence or testify in the prosecution’s favour.”

“Again, on the question of who initiated the meeting, even from the NDC’s presentation, it is clear that any meeting at all was mooted and initiated by the third accused.”

“We would like to also put on record, that as of February 2022 when Jakpa requested for a meeting with the AG, the AG never met him and never made any arrangement through the Supreme Court Justice, Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi. It was not until the AG was invited to the residence of Justice Yonny Kulendi in 2023 that he surprisingly met Richard Jakpa at the residence,” he added.

According to Davies, the only meeting at which the Attorney General, met the third accused was in the residence His Lordship Justice Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi who about six weeks ago, requested to see the Attorney General.

“It is not out of place for the Attorney General to visit the said Justice upon request. More so, when the two were friends even before the elevation of the latter to the Supreme Court.”

The NPP emphasised that the Attorney General at the time of the invitation was unaware that the third accused person was going to be present and therefore his subsequent appearance in the house of the Justice Kulendi was surprising.

“It is pertinent to note, that prior to this meeting, the Attorney General had closed his case and the court had thrown out the application of Ato Forson as being without merit.”
