Ambulance Trial: Minority Caucus rallies behind Ato Forson

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority Caucus in Parliament has thrown its weight behind its leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, in his ongoing court case regarding the ambulance trial.

The caucus has decided to attend parliamentary sessions only after court proceedings conclude each day, in solidarity with their leader.

This decision follows the refusal by Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe to grant Dr. Forson permission to attend important parliamentary sessions, including a crucial Parliamentary Service Board meeting last week.

The NDC Minority Caucus views the judge’s decisions as an attempt to hinder their leader from fulfilling his constitutional duties.

A statement by the Minority caucus available to Metro TV, said “We will continue to solidarize and stand by our leader anytime he is due to appear in court. We are committed to supporting Dr. Forson and will explore all available tools in our parliamentary efforts.”

The third meeting of the fourth session of the eighth parliament begins today, with Dr. Forson expected to deliver a resumption address and perform other critical parliamentary duties.
