NDC Man Castigates Judges
5/5/2012 5:31:00 PM -
A MEMBER of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji Halidu Haruna who appears on radio programmes for the party has suggested that the state back off the Kennedy Agyapong case and allow the International Criminal Court (ICC) to deal with it.
His suggestion which he said is his personal opinion during an Asempa Fm programme last Saturday is informed by what he said is the unpredictability of the judiciary in the country.
'Let the state stop the prosecution so that the ICC can deal with it. The court system is unpredictable. This is my personal opinion. They will go and do their conspiracy theory, conspire and let him off the hook,' he said.
He recalled that Ataa Akyea, MP for Abuakwa South and lead counsel for Agyapong once said some judges were not going to be fair to the NPP as an indication that some members of the bench could not be trusted.
The state he went on should stay the prosecution and let the Hague deal with the Assin North MP 'and if they like let them go and conspire there. Our court system is mostly on the side of wrongdoers.'
Even the police he said have no confidence in the court system adding that it is reason why personnel of the security agency kill armed robbers.
Policemen he said have been complaining on the quiet about how judges give bail to armed robbers when they are brought to their courts.
'Go and talk to the police on a one-on-one basis and you will realize they are not happy with the court system,' he said.
'We would continue to wallow in pain if we won't speak out. Why would judges give bail to armed robbers?' he said.
Turning to Nana Akufo-Addo he challenged him to speak out about Kennedy Agyapong's remarks since as he put it the NPP flag bearer spoke about what he considers the weakness of President Mills.
When the Ivorian issue cropped up regarding whether Ghana should go to war or not, Nana spoke out, he said.
Why won't he speak out on the Kennedy issue and state his position on homosexuals, he asked pointing out the NPP lied when it said the NPP flag bearer met with David Cameron in the UK.
