The sovereignty of every nation is determined by the efficiency, effectiveness and INDEPENDENCE of the various organs of government. If this is the case, then we can assume (from what has been going on in Ghana for the past week) that the Judiciary in the nation is not to be trusted; especially, if we want to seek justice for an gruesome action. This is not what we want to hear for Ghana; it does not order well for our young democracy.
For 'supposedly' learned people to intimate that the decision to acquit the people in Ya-Na case was influenced by certain individuals portrays the ignorance, prejudice and ego centric attitudes of the people we have chosen to lead us. For a legislative member to say that a certain politician promised free the accused persons is unsubstantiated, unsuited frivolous and tantamount to pure folly. Have we forgotten about Rwanda so soon. Why do we want irritate unstable emotions of people who are hurt?
If the said, legislator had been following the proceedings of the case, he would have known that the A-Gs office was going to lose the case by all means. If not for anything, their inability to identify the remains of Ya-Na shows pure incompetence on their part in this age of DNA technology advancement. The promise to render justice does not imply that the government or the families involved in the case, go on a vendetta, just because of justice as they perceive it has not been administered.
Justice should be pursued in the court of law by proving "beyond all reasonable doubt" that the case presented 'is what is by if turned in all angles' by the prosecutor. If not for anything, the words 'all reasonable' should be enough for opinion leaders to respect the decision of the court.
Ghana is a sovereign nation, Politicians and other loquacious citizens should leave the matter be; if anybody is not satisfied with the ruling of the court, they should seek redress in the highest court in the nation; that is, if all other court bureaucracies have been followed.
GHANAIANS ARE NOT FOOLS! WE HAVE COME OF AGE, STOP THROWING DUST IN OUR EYES AND STOP POLITICIZING EVERY ISSUE IN THIS COUNTRY. I DON'T BLAME PROFESSOR ATTA MILLS, I BLAME THE PROSECUTORS WHO WENT TO THE COURT UNPREPARED. I BELIEVE JUSTICE SHALL BE SERVED WHEN ALL FACTS ARE OBTAINED. BUT UNTIL THEN, LET US ALL HOLD OUR PEACE AND KEEP OUR IGNORANT THOUGHTS TO OURSELVES. IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING POSITIVE TO SHARE, PLEASE DO SO IN THE MOST CIVIL MANNER. WE WILL NOT ENTERTAIN THIS BLAME AGAIN IN OUR GENERATION OR AFTER!
