Richard Jakpa, the third accused person in the ongoing ambulance trial, has defended his decision to secretly record the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, in a private conversation that has gone viral.

The Attorney-General was captured on a leaked tape allegedly trying to convince Mr. Jakpa to implicate Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, who is the first accused in the case.

Richard Jakpa in an engagement with the media in Accra, justified his decision to record the conversation saying the Attorney-General had breached the law.

“They are claiming it is a 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.”
