Deputy Attorney General Joseph Kpemka has expressed government’s confident to furnish the court with the necessary evidence to prosecute the case involving chairman of opposition National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Deputy communication director,Kwaku Boahen in an alleged leaked tape.
Mr. Joseph Kpemka in an interview stated that, the NDC has no authority to describe the case which is still in court as frivolous and vexatious noting that the government’s attorney has provided adequate facts to contest the case; hence the action of the NDC is a premature one.
“we are not here to prosecute anybody wrongly, but what we confident of is that, government will provide the appropriate facts to follow up this case to the latter”. He stated.
Earlier, the NDC, prior to the appearance of the two (Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Kwaku Boahen) has described the move as politically-motivated persecution of their officers. Meanwhile, the party’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, and a Deputy Communications Officer, Kwaku Boahen, have been charged for conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.
The two pleaded not guilty to the charges and have been admitted to 100,000 cedis plus one surety bail each.
It could be recalled that, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was allegedly captured on a leaked tape asking communication officers of the NDC to take the Chair of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Jean Mensa, to the cleaners while giving them the go-ahead to also abuse the Chairman of the National Peace Council.
A high powered delegation of the opposition National Democratic Congress including former president John Mahama on Tuesday thronged the Accra High Court to throw their weight behind the party’s chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Deputy Communication director Mr. Kwaku Boahen in the alleged leaked tape trial.
