Ambulance case: Richard Jakpa defends decision of recording conversation with AG

Richard Jakpa, the third defendant in the ambulance trial, has defended his choice to audiotape Attorney-General and Minister of Justice Godfred Yeboah Dame in a private discussion that went viral.

Leaked audio purports to show the Attorney General attempting to persuade Mr. Jakpa to indict Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the first accused in the case.

Speaking with the media in Accra, Richard Jakpa defended his choice to audiotape the discussion by claiming that the Attorney General had breached the law.

“They are claiming it is doctored tape. I didn’t say that, so they should bring the original. They should tender the original to the court.

“We had a private conversation, and it is a conversation that leads to committing crimes, so it can no longer be private. It becomes a crime against the states.

“So that private claim is neither here nor there. There must be justice, and I am here seeking justice.”
