The NDC Plays Alleged 16-Minute Phone Conversation Between AG Dame and Third Accused

A 16-minute phone conversation that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) claims demonstrates Attorney-General Godfred Dame’s attempt to force the third accused in the ongoing ambulance case to provide false testimony that would implicate Minority Leader Ato Forson, who is a party to the trial, has been played.

The NDC states that the AG spoke with Richard Jakpa, the third accused, early on April 9, 2024, a few hours before the accused person showed up in court to give a statement.

The NDC party leader, Aseidu Nketia, stated, “The audio recording provides incontrovertible evidence of professional misconduct on the part of Godfred Dame as a lawyer and prosecutor.”

The accusations coincide with Mr. Jakpa’s accusation last week in court that the Attorney-General used deceptive methods to get him to implicate the Minority Leader. Mr. Dame, however, insisted he had proof that the third accused had approached him about a plea agreement and denied any misconduct.

The voices heard on the audio played at today’s NDC conference, May 28, seemed to be those of AG Dame and Jakpa talking about when the ambulances arrived in Ghana, the letters of credit authorizing the contract, the pre-inspection defects that were not properly inspected, and an arrangement regarding the accused’s obligation to respond to questions in the case. The name of Dr. Forson, the Minority Leader, was also mentioned.

“To be honest, if I comply with your request regarding how I respond to the questions, I will be dishonest because I will be helping someone who I know is innocent of all wrongdoing. For instance, I will help put Ato Fortson in jail because I knew something was off and chose to respond to the questions in a way that would strengthen your case for putting him in jail. The other caller said, “I’ll be fighting with my conscience anytime you bring up this issue when we were at Yonny Kulendi’s place.”

Minority Leader Ato Forson, a former deputy finance minister, and businessman Richard Jakpa are accused of causing the state to lose €2.37 million in revenue during the importation of 200 defective ambulances in 2012.

Both Ato Forson and Richard Jakpa have refuted any wrongdoing throughout this trial. Nonetheless, the Attorney General insists that Ato Forson and the other defendants have a case because of their involvement in the importation of “fake ambulances” into the nation.
