The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has launched a scathing attack on Attorney General Godfred Dame, alleging a lack of impartiality in the handling of important legal cases within the country.
According to the NDC, it believes that its members are being unfairly targeted by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), and as such, it is calling on the Attorney-General to demonstrate equal fervor in prosecuting other prominent individuals involved in alleged criminal activities.
Specifically, the NDC has urged the Attorney General to focus his attention on high-profile cases, including the former CEO of Menzgold, NAM1, as well as those accused in the JB Danquah murder case, among other notable instances.
“We also want a speedy trial in the Menzgold, Ahmed Suale, Major Mahama and J. B. Danquah cases and on this basis can they kindly also apply for daily trials in these cases too? Justice must be seen to be pursued and done to all manner of persons and in all cases,” the party’s Legal Directorate said in a statement issued on Thursday.
The NDC lawyer also condemned the ogoing daily criminal prosecution of its Assin North legislator, James Gyakye Quayson.
