High Court Jugde directed Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame to stay away from the trial.

High court judge in the ambulance case, involving Hon. Ato Forson and Mr. Jakpa, has directed Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame to stay away from the trial on grounds of professional and prosecutorial misconduct.

This is after the court declined jurisdiction to order an enquiry and mistrial based on the prosecutorial misconduct of the Attorney General.

The court directed the Hon. Ato Forson to seek redress at the appropriate forum, the General Legal Council, if so minded.

The telephone recording between Mr. Jakpa and the Attorney-General has however been admitted into evidence despite protest from the Attorney-General that same was inadmissible.

This is the first time that an Attorney-General of Ghana had been directed by Court to recuse himself from a trial. 

Ruling on applications filed by Mr. Jakpa is still being read.
