Ambulance case trial: Ato Forson petitions Chief Justice for live broadcast of proceedings


Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the Minority Leader and main defendant in the ongoing ambulance trial, has directed his legal team to request that the Chief Justice televise the remaining proceedings. This request, made in a letter from his lawyers on Thursday, May 30, is a response to recent allegations of misconduct against Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame.

Richard Jakpa recently accused the Attorney-General of encouraging him to provide false testimony against Dr. Ato Forson. To support Jakpa’s claim, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) released a 16-minute recording that purportedly captures a conversation between Dame and Jakpa. The recording allegedly shows Dame coaching Jakpa on what to say in court to incriminate Dr. Ato Forson.

During a press conference on May 28, NDC Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah claimed the tape revealed a session where Jakpa was being guided on his testimony. Dr. Ato Forson believes that live broadcasting the trial would ensure transparency, uphold the principles of open justice, and allow the public to form informed opinions and hold those involved accountable.

“In the wake of the recent exposé concerning the alleged misconduct of the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, I have instructed my lawyers to petition the Chief Justice for the live broadcast of all subsequent proceedings in the Ambulance Trial. This request is motivated by a deep commitment to transparency and open justice, principles that are fundamental to a fair and impartial legal system.”

“The allegations against the Attorney-General are deeply concerning. If true, they represent a serious breach of public trust and a threat to the integrity of our judicial system. It is imperative that these allegations be thoroughly investigated and that the public be given the opportunity to witness the proceedings firsthand,” he posted on social media.
