Today, Thursday, June 13, the High Court in Accra will rule on the admissibility of an audio recording involving the Attorney-General and businessman Richard Jakpa as evidence in the ongoing ambulance case. This decision comes amid a heated legal battle as Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson’s lawyers attempt to introduce the recording, despite objections from the Attorney General.

The defense argues that the 16-minute recording is crucial for demonstrating that the Attorney General’s actions constitute oppression and undermine the trial’s integrity. Lead counsel Dr. Aziz Bamba claims the recording is vital for understanding the alleged procedural irregularities and the bad faith pursuit of charges against Dr. Forson.

However, the Attorney General disputes the recording’s relevance, pointing to a previous dismissal of a mistrial motion based on the same recording as evidence of its limited pertinence. The prosecution also argues that the recording does not directly address the financial loss charges and accuses Richard Jakpa of violating privacy by making the recording.

The court’s decision on this matter will significantly impact the trial’s direction as it resumes.
