Ato Forson files application for mistrial in ambulance case

The Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, has submitted a supplemental affidavit in support of the move on notice for an order of mistrial, injunction, and/or suspension of proceedings.

Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame and third accused Richard Jakpa allegedly tried to advise the latter to implicate Dr. Ato Forson in the ongoing trial, according to a leaked recording that was used by the legislators representing Ajumako, Enyan, and Esiam.

In the affidavit, the legal team for Ato Forson contends that the Attorney General committed misconduct himself and requests that the prosecution be deemed incompetent.

“It has become necessary to file this affidavit in order to bring to the attention of the Court and in the interest of justice, certain pertinent, material and relevant matters that have a bearing on the fair and just determination of the current application.

“That I say that I have since filing the instant application had the opportunity of listening to a recording widely circulating in the media depicting the voices of the Attorney-General and A3 fervently discussing the evidence the Attorney-General will prefer the said A3 to adduce at the trial. At the hearing of the instant application, my counsel will seek leave of the court to have the said audio recording played in open court.”
