Despite the presiding judge’s recommendation that AG Godfred Yeboah Dame rescue himself, AG Dame has stated that he intends to pursue the ambulance case.

Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson and Richard Jakpa are involved in the ambulance case. The High Court judge presiding over the case had already recommended that the AG recuse himself from the trial.

The judge voiced concerns regarding the AG’s extrajudicial interactions with Richard Jakpa, the third accused, and made this recommendation.

After going over the case details with Jakpa, the AG urged him to provide the court with a medical justification in order to allow for a postponement.

The judge did point out that there aren’t enough reasons to drop the charges against the accused based on this incident.

In order to serve the interests of the judiciary, Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe advised the AG to withdraw back from the case’s direct prosecution.

In spite of this instruction, Dame claimed that the judge’s remark was only a recommendation in a post-proceedings press conference. He has chosen to move forward with the case in spite of the judge’s apprehension.

“The judge herself even after her ruling clarified that she has not given any such order at all but it is only an advice…I am conducting the matter I am still conducting the trial. The most important point today is that all the applications filed by the applicants have been dismissed in their entirety.”

“All the five applications have failed. And I think that in reaction to this, I will say that it clearly shows that there are a group of people in this country who ride on manipulation of facts, distortion, and deception of the public. They are always seeking to mislead and deceive the public. Today they have been exposed,” Godfred Dame stated.
