The most anticipated day most Ghanaians can’t wait to see now is the day the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of the Republic of Ghana, Mrs. Jean Mensah will step into the witness box at the Supreme Court, to be cross-examined by the lead counsel for the National Democratic Congress, NDC.
There are two sides involved in this anticipation. The National Democratic Congress trusts that, the cross-examination of the EC boss to be conducted by Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata will expose all the irregularities that happened, which renders the declaration of the 2020 presidential election unacceptable by them.
The other side is also those who support that, the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensah did the right thing and thus, they can’t wait for her to defend herself that, there is nothing wrong with the declaration of the 2020 presidential election.
Most people also think that, the EC boss is trying to run away from being exposed by the cross-examination of the lead counsel of the petitioner, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, but a to some lawyers and some studies gathered, it is not so.
It is believed that, forcing someone into the witness box at the court is needless. This is based on a fact that; it is irrelevant when you believe the witness may not talk.
To throw more light on this from some lawyers and some studies, someone cannot be forced to talk in court if the fellow understands clearly that, doing so may take him/her into trouble and thus, a witness can be called to testify in the witness box at the court, but the witness can ignore talking if it will bring some exposure.
So in this ongoing 2020 petition case where Mrs. Jean Mensah is expected to be in the witness box to be cross examined, what if she refuses to talk in the witness box?
