Ambulance Trial: Godfred Dame must be removed as Attorney General – Franklin Cudjoe

President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has begun a campaign to remove Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, from office, citing his alleged interference in the Ambulance trial.

Franklin Cudjoe’s call comes amidst accusations by Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the trial, that the Attorney General persuaded him to testify against Minority Leader and former Deputy Finance Minister, Cassiel Ato Forson.

In a series of Facebook posts on Tuesday, May 28, Franklin Cudjoe described the Attorney General’s actions as “political” and compared his behaviour to a “cobra”, saying “Nipa y3 bad. AG y3 cobra. He must go” (meaning “Human being is bad, the Attorney General is a cobra, he must go”).

He also stated that he was initially wrong to doubt the Attorney General’s ability to engage in such behavior, but now believes that he must be held accountable.

The IMANI Africa President had previously expressed concerns about the political nature of the Ato Forson trial, and is now urging Ghanaians to join him in calling for the Attorney General’s removal.

The development adds a new twist to the ongoing Ambulance trial, which has already been marked by controversy and political tensions.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Legal and Constitutional Committee, Frank Davies, has dismissed an audio tape allegedly capturing the voice of Attorney-General Godfred Dame and Richard Jakpa, the third accused person in the Ambulance trial trial, as doctored.

According to Frank Davies, no amount of evil intentions can dent the image of the Attorney General, describing the audio tape as a desperate attempt to tarnish his reputation.

The audio tape, which has been circulating in the media, allegedly captures a conversation between the Attorney General and Richard Jakpa, discussing ways to compromise the trial of Ato Forson, the former Deputy Minister of Finance.
