Minority Leader and first accused person in the ambulance purchase trial, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson is seeking a live broadcast of the subsequent proceedings in court.

The accused through his lawyers has written to Chief Justice Gertrude Araba Esaaba Sackey Torkornoo to formally request for the live broadcast.

The request comes after the release of the recording of the conversation between Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame and the first accused person in the case, Richard Jakpa.

According to Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the request is motivated by a deep commitment to transparency and open justice, principles that are fundamental to a fair and impartial legal system.

"In the wake of the recent exposé concerning the alleged misconduct of the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, I have instructed my lawyers to petition the Chief Justice for the live broadcast of all subsequent proceedings in the Ambulance trial.

"The allegations against the Attorney-General are deeply concerning. If true, they represent a serious breach of public trust and a threat to the integrity of our judicial system,” Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said in a post on X.

The Minority Leader insists that the allegations against the Attorney General must be thoroughly investigated.
