The Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt has made a bold declaration over the allegations made against the Chief Justice by one Ghanaian lawyer. Kwesi Pratt has gained recognition and deference as a concerned and outspoken journalist on national issues. To this effect, his voice resonates many public decisions of the government.
Earlier today, August 28, 2021 he was interviewed by Sena Nombo on Alhaji and Alhaji show hosted on Pan African TV. It was a heated discussion as Kwesi Pratt sought to register his displeasure over th President's decision which has almost truncated the case against Chief Justice Annin Yeboah.
Sharing his views on the trending story, he indicated that the decision of the President has truncated the case and has made it impossible for the case to proceed to the next level. In what seems to be disappointing decision to him, he called for ease for thorough investigation into the allegations.
Speaking further, he boldly emphasized his stands on the case by not finding the Chief Justice guilty but he remained resolute that the bottom of the case is rooted in proper investigation. He opined that the Chief Justice is not above the law to be guided through the backdoor.
He said, "Now it is clear that the Supreme Court has no power to amend the constitution and the processes have been clearly stated in the constitution. Here is the case where it has been amended through the backdoor."
He added, "I'm not saying the Chief Justice is guilty. That is not what I'm saying. What I am saying is that there is an allegation and for us to move forward, we need to investigate the allegations to know how to proceed to the next level. The President's decision in consultation with the Council of State has not given us the opportunity to determine whether to move on. The case is dead. The President has killed the case."
