Ambulance trial: AG has repeatedly contacted me to implicate Ato Forson – Richard Jakpa

The third accused in the ongoing ambulance purchase trial, Richard Jakpa, has made grave allegations against Attorney-General (A-G) Godfred Yeboah Dame.

In open court on Thursday, May 23, 2024, Jakpa said that the AG had often contacted him, asking for help in bringing charges against Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the former Deputy Finance Minister and minority leader.

Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe had warned Jakpa to give clear answers rather than sidestepping questions and wasting the court’s time during the cross-examination by Dr. Forson’s attorney.

At the judge’s admonition, Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame charged Jakpa of standing up for the Minority Leader. In response, Jakpa became enraged, alleging that the A-G had called him several times at strange times in an attempt to gather evidence against Dr. Forson.

“The A-G has on several occasions engaged me at odd hours to help him make a case against A1 and I have evidence for that…If he pushes me, I will open the Pandora’s box. I don’t understand why the A-G will accuse me of defending A1 when I’m here to defend myself, ” Jakpa fumed in court.

“If he pushes me, I’ll open the Pandora’s box. I have evidence to all this,” a visibly angry Richard Jakpa indicated to the court.
