Kwesi Pratt: The Attorney General Is Wrong

Posted by Business in Ghana on July 9, 2009

The managing editor of the Insight newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt has called on the Attorney General, Mrs. Betty Mould Iddrisu to retract her statement that the former Minister of Youth and Sports, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak cannot be prosecuted since he had done nothing wrong and had been cleared of all corruption charges.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show, Mr. Pratt said although he was not asking the Attorney-General to prosecute Hon Muntaka, he was of the opinion that she should not deny that the former Minister is guilty of some of the crimes. According to him, Hon. Mubarak himself admitted to using state money to finance his girlfriend’s trip to Germany and Cote d’Ivoire and also bought pampers and mouth gaggle for his baby. He added that Hon. Muntaka faked his girlfriend’s identity and passport by changing documents to make it look like she was working at the Sports Ministry which he used to defraud the German Embassy to acquire a visa for her – and that alone, he said, smacks of fraud, and therefore warrants prosecution. Mr Pratt was speaking about today’s Independent newspaper lead story captioned, “Muntaka Won’t Face Court”.

    I think that Mr Pratt is right. The court will decide whether the minister is guilty or not and what punishment should be metted out to him or not. I like his selfless opinion.
