NPP’s National Communications Director; Yaw Buaben Asamoa has said that the NDC’s urge to petition The Commonwealth Secretariat over alleged human rights abuse by the ruling NPP government, is premature.
According to Yaw Buaben, the NPP has done nothing contrary to The Commonwealth Secretariat laws. He insisted that the NPP is using legal proceedings and acceptable practices to prosecute individuals who are shortcoming with regards to rule of law. He therefore revealed that the NPP isn’t harassing anyone rather, the NDC’s aim of challenging institutions is what gives the perception of harassment.
“It’s premature, all that they are doing is premature. What do they want us to do, abandon the judicial system with processes ongoing based on their opinion of the way justice is meted out in this country?”
“They have never edified the judiciary in this country. They have consistently attacked the judiciary in and out of power They want to operate above the law and they want to operate in a way that sets them apart from the rest of us. So, in what way is the Commonwealth going to benefit us when we have a judiciary,” Asamoa was quoted by asaaseradio.com.
