Mahama Cannot Compel Us To Be In The Witness Box – Akoto Ampaw To Supreme Court Of Justice



Mr. Anthony Akoto Ampaw who is the lawyer for the second respondent in the 2020 presidential election petition hearing told the Supreme Court of Justice today, that former President John Dramani Mahama (petitioner) cannot force them to elect a witness to appear in the witness box. He made this statement during the legal arguments on a move by the respondents not to testify in the case.

Lawyer Akoto Ampaw also stated that Former President John Dramani Mahama of the biggest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has adduced evidence and dismissed his case. He said they have taken the position that in their assessment, they’ve not discharged the burden of producing evidence and burden of proof and so, therefore, they will not give further evidence and the Supreme Court will determine the case on the evidence before it. In his own words; they are entitled not to adduce any evidence or call any witness.

Mr. Justin Amenuvor also told the Supreme Court that given the evidence of Former President John Dramani Mahama’s witnesses who were cross-examined in the case, they do not want to lead any further evidence.
