Former NPP flagbearer aspirant- Arthur Kennedy
A former NPP flagbearer aspirant, Arthur K. Kennedy has cautioned President Mahama to “sit up” and rather hold the Attorney General responsible for not being proactive in the “Montie 3” case.
According to Dr. Kennedy who’s based in the US, the “Attorney General dropped the ball”.

His comments come in the wake of agitations from NDC supporters and some leading functionaries of the party as well as other learned individuals in and outside the country who are pressurizing the sitting President who doubles as flagbearer of the party to invoke Article 72 of Ghana’s constitution to free the 3 convicted persons or reduce the sentence though they admit the “Montie 3” were at fault, but claim the judgment was harsh.

The 3 were sentenced to a 4- month jail term and a fine of GHc10, 000.00 each failure for which they will serve another one month each in prison.

But Arthur K’s who spoke on NeatFM via phone in connection with the “Montie 3” case on Thursday July, 28 thinks the President should sanction his Attorney General instead claiming, “The Attorney General [in the person of Mrs. Marietta Brew Appiah- Oppong] dropped the ball because she should have instituted charges” against the “Montie 3” and not the Supreme Court.

He’s also urged Parliament to “sit up” and enact a law that will make clear without ambiguity, the processes of executing laws.

“I think Parliament needs to sit up. Even though there are procedures for content and other things, I think all the procedures are not clear enough. I think that parliament should consider passing a law to streamline these processes and while they are at it, maybe they should call it the Judiciary Act and robe in all the problems we have with the judiciary,” Arthur told Adakabre on NeatFM.
