The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Mr Sam George, says he has no hope for justice from the President Akufo-Addo led administration following his assault by a National Security officer during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
He said the government’s White Paper on the findings is the “clearest sign yet” that President Akufo-Addo and the National Security apparatus have been plotting “a grand agenda of unleashing violence and undermining the peace, stability, and safety of our beloved Republic.”
The Emile Short Commission which probed the electoral violence recommended the criminal prosecution of a national security operative for slapping Sam George.
But the government in a White Paper on the Commission’s report has argued that prosection was not necessary because the facts presented by the Commission supported “a valid defence of provocation for the said assault by the national security operative.
In a press statement signed and issued on Thursday by Mr Sam George, he said that the government’s rejection of some of the findings of the Emile Short Commission after a probe of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence did not surprise him.
“I had no hopes of justice from this government and I have been vindicated. The position of Government in the accompanying White Paper reinforces my long-held view that the dastardly actions of January 31st, 2019 had the tacit approval of those who occupy the highest office of the land. The rabid disagreement with the findings and recommendations of the Commission are the testament of this fact.”
