The retired state prosecutor, Ellen C. Kwawukume who is in Mr Kennedy Agyapong’s “Who watches the watchman” video, has deflated suggestions that she was deceased.
The 67-year-old has responded to the allegations leveled against her in the video, demanded a retraction and an apology from Mr Kennedy Agyapong.
According to the retired state prosecutor, it was erroneous that Mr Agyapong claimed in various media interviews that she was deceased.
In a press statement, she denied receiving a bribe of $5000 to botch the case: “The Republic vrs. 1. Mohammed Hafix Abdullah, 2. Mubarak Seidu and 3. Prince Kinston Kwame (at large).
She explained she retired in 2011 and handed the case over to another prosecutor, two years before the case was dismissed and it was therefore not true that she was not going to court and that was why the case was dismissed.
“As a prelude to the airing of the above-mentioned video and in some further video interviews you granted various media outlets before the airing, you Kennedy Agyapong said that the video shows a public prosecutor, who is deceased, demanding and collecting a bribe from Anas Aremeyaw Anas.”
“You further went on to say that in view of the $5,000 bribe, you alleged I received, I failed to attend court sittings and generally failed to pursue the suit, resulting in the case being dismissed on the 13th of October 2013,” Ellen C. Kwawukume wrote in the press statement.
