The Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo has revealed her readiness to furnish lawyers for the embattled former COCOBOD boss Dr Stephen Opuni with all documents required to defend their client.
According to her, she will do everything possible within the law to secure the conviction of the two suspects, Dr Opuni and a private businessman Seidu Agongo both of whom are currently standing trial at an Accra High Court over a number of accusations including willfully causing financial loss to the state.
Ms Akuffo’s response comes a day after Dr Opuni brought a motion before the court asking the Attorney General to produce all documents she intends to use in prosecuting him in court.
The motion, filed through his lawyers, said: “I also do not have copies of any of the letters and or documents mentioned and or referred to by the Prosecution in the facts.”
“I am entitled as of right to all facilities which the prosecution intends to use at the trial. This is to enable myself and my Counsel prepare for the trial.”
“…I have been further advised by Counsel and verily believe same to be true that on a true and proper interpretation of Article 19(2) (e) and (g) of the 1992 Constitution, I am entitled as of right to copies of all including the contracts and numerous letters referred to by the Prosecution,” parts of the motion read.
