The Attorney General has denied claims by Member of Parliament for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam Constituency, that the charges against him are a result of his opposition to aspects of the government’s 2022 budget statement.

A statement issued on Wednesday and signed by the Deputy Attorney-General, Diana Asonaba Dapaah, said all persons in Ghana are equal before the law.

The status of a Member of Parliament is no bar to prosecution for a crime committed, the Attorney General said.

The AG further stated that investigations into financial crimes in relation to the purchase of ambulances under the Mahama administration commenced in 2017.

“Same (investigations) had been ongoing since 2017 with a number of statements taken from various persons at different points in time, including the Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, former Minister for Health (now Speaker of the Parliament of Ghana), Mr. Kwaku Agyeman-Mensah, Madam Sherry Ayittey, and Dr. Alex Segbefia, all former Ministers for Health as well as the first accused,” part of the statement read.

“Further statements were taken from various persons. At that stage, no issue relating to the 2022 Budget and Economic Policy of the Government had come up,” the statement added.

“All persons in Ghana are equal before the law. The status of a Member of Parliament is no bar to prosecution for a crime committed,” according to the statement.
