Financial analyst, Sydney Casely-Hayford has described as “completely useless” the Attorney General’s department.

Speaking on Citi FM’s The Big Issue, the leading member of pressure group #OccupyGhana, stated that the bifurcation of the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General (AG) is necessary because the department is unable to prosecute police crimes in its current state.

“The Attorney General is completely useless in being able to prosecute political crime. She can’t do it. I’m talking about the institution of the AG,” he fumed.

Mr Casely-Hayford has questioned the logic in the AG’s department’s decision to sign a document for the process to begin.

“Who is it in the AG’ department who signed whatever document there is for the police to be able to go to court and get a docket to be able to prosecute the LMVCA people? Who in their right mind did that? There is some mad person in the AG’s department or whoever has that authority… And I would like to know who in the AG’s department is controlling these offences on the people of this country,” he said.
