richard jakpa alleges attorney general’s attempt to build case against ato forson

Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ongoing trial of the ambulance case, has made serious allegations against Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame.

Jakpa claimed that Dame previously approached him to assist in building a case against Minority Leader and former Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson. This revelation adds a new layer of complexity to the high-profile case.

Background to the Ambulance Case involving Ato Forson

Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson and two others are currently on trial for causing financial loss to the state due to the importation of 30 ambulances. These ambulances were part of a 2012 contract between the Ministry of Health and the Dubai-based company, Big Sea Limited, for the purchase of 200 ambulances. The case has garnered significant public interest due to the involvement of prominent political figures.

During cross-examination by the counsel for the Minority Leader, the trial judge, Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, cautioned Jakpa to be concise in his responses and not to waste the court’s time. This prompted Attorney-General Yeboah Dame to accuse Jakpa of defending Dr. Ato Forson. The accusation led to a heated exchange in the courtroom.

In a pointed response to the Attorney-General’s accusation, Jakpa asserted that Dame’s frustration stemmed from his earlier unsuccessful attempt to recruit Jakpa to support the state’s case against Dr. Ato Forson. This statement has raised questions about the integrity of the legal proceedings and the motivations behind the prosecution.

The trial continues to unfold with these new allegations, drawing widespread attention and speculation. The outcome of this case will likely have significant implications for the involved parties and the broader political landscape in Ghana.

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,


If he pushes me, I’ll open the Pandora’s box. I have evidence to all this, Mr Jakpa said in court.
