Former Attorney General Martin Amidu has condemned the Deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayineh for attacking Justice John Ajet-Nassam, the judge who acquitted and discharged businessman Alfred Woyome.

Mr Ayineh described the ruling as a “travesty of justice” and alleged that the Justice’s “mind was made up from day one”, adding that his “ruling is a prime example of poor judicial reasoning leading to conclusions that are totally untenable.”

In a statement, the anti corruption crusader said, “The conduct of Dr. Dominic Ayineh, the Deputy Attorney General, amounts to contempt of scandalizing the Judiciary; secondly it interferes with the inherent democratic principle of the independence of the judiciary; and thirdly and fundamentally, it contravenes Articles 125(3) and 127(1) (2) and (3) of the 1992 Constitution.”

He has called on Ghanaians to join him to condemn Mr Ayineh in the supreme interest of the law.

“I invite every good citizen of Ghana and the world in general to condemn the Deputy Attorney General’s conduct in the interest of the preservation of the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary in Ghana against executive governmental impunity.”
