Attorney General, Dr. Benjamin Kunbuor has been dragged to the Supreme Court over allegations that he faked an assassination attempt on himself.
The Centre for National Affairs, plaintiff in the case is asking the court to declare Dr. Kumbuor’s continued stay in office a violation of article 284 of the constitution.
Article 284 of the constitution says “a public officer shall not put himself in a position where his personal interest conflicts or is likely to conflict with the performance of the functions of his office”.
The Centre for National Affairs believes that Dr. Kunbuor’s alleged faked assassination attempt on himself constitutes a misconduct that puts his personal interest in direct conflict with the performance of the functions of his office.
“It came out from the report that Dr Benjamin Kunbuor has deceived the Ghana Police Service. When you read the letter written by the CID director to the then IGP it clearly put Dr Benjamin Kunbuor in a case of misconduct,” Rocky Obeng is Senior Policy Analyst with the Centre told host of Joy FM Super Morning Show, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah on Tuesday.
In a statement of claim the Centre maintains that in 2010 Dr. Kunbuor made an official complaint to the police alleging that there had been an assassination attempt on his life.
The Centre says its subsequent study of a police investigative report into the incident revealed that Dr. Kumbuor was indicted for manufacturing the assassination story.
It says in spite of the indictment by the CID report, Dr. Kunbuor continues to hold his position as Attorney General. It is the view of the centre that the conduct of Dr. Kumbuor is a violation of the constitution and is therefore asking the Supreme Court to interpret article 284 in respect of the Attorney General’s continuous stay in office.
Rocky Obeng noted: “At this stage we are of a conviction that Dr Benjamin Kunbuor who is a suspect must be taken to court by the very department he occupies, clearly, this obviously ties the wheels of justice delivery machine because Dr Benjamin Kunbuor has failed to step aside for an Attorney General to initiate a proceeding against him in court.”
