Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi has said Madam Jean Mensa does not want to be cross-examined because she risks being exposed.
According to him, the 1st Respondent is running away from being exposed by lead counsel of the petitioner Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata which is why she is being prevented from entering the witness box.
Speaking to the press after the election petition hearing today in the Supreme Court, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi said Jean Mensa needs to testify especially when she is one of the key figures in the whole case.
“Jean Mensa is running away from the court because she is afraid of being exposed. She declared the 2020 election results and that is why she needs to come and defend what necessitated her decision.”
“She knows she will be exposed and that is why her lawyers are trying hard to make her evade cross-examination.”
The Supreme Court will continue to sit on the 2020 election petition case on Thursday, February 11, 2021.
