The Minority in Parliament has given indication that it will not avail itself for Parliamentary business on days scheduled for the hearing of the ongoing ambulance purchase trial.

The caucus says its decision comes on the back of the refusal of the presiding judge to grant the Minority Leader, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson leave of the court to attend business of the house today.

The Minority Chief Whip, Governs Agbodza in a statement said: “The NDC Minority Caucus has taken notice of this worrying trend that shows an attempt by the trial judge, Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, to prevent the Minority Leader from performing his constitutional duties as an elected Member of Parliament and the Leader of the Minority Caucus.

“In the light of the above, and the continuous persecution of the Minority Leader, the NDC Minority will continue to solidarise and stand by its Leader anytime he is due to appear in court,” he stated.

“…The NDC Minority Caucus further reserves the right to apply all other tools available to us in our approach to business on the floor.”
