Ambulance case: AG releases details of Ato Forson’s bargaining plea letters

The Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame has released the full details of the bargaining plea letters sent to his office by the 1st accused Dr Ato Forson, Minority Leader in the Ambulance purchase case.

Richard Jakpa, the third accused, alleged in open court that Attorney-General Godfred Dame approached him multiple times, seeking his assistance to implicate Dr. Ato Forson.

The AG in a statement said the third accused rather in a series of letters requested plea bargaining which has not been accepted.

“It is rather the third accused who, by various letters dated 27th April 2023, 16th May 2023, 30th May 2023 and 12th June 2023, has proposed to the Republic through the Attorney-General to engage in plea bargaining or plea negotiations. This plea bargaining proposal has, to date, not been accepted by the Attorney-General.

“Even though the law on plea bargaining passed by Parliament permits a prosecutor to negotiate with an accused person after a plea proposal has been made, the Attorney-General has not engaged the third accused person to give false testimony in the matter.”

Attached are the letters released by the Attorney General’s office.
