Murder of Judges: You are “twisting judgment all the time. Rawlings was seriously right”- Security Analyst David Agbee to Supreme Court


Security Analyst David Agbee has sought to justify the brutal murder of three High court judges 39 years ago. 

In what appears to be a reaction to the Elections Petition and the Supreme Court’s decisions to dismiss applications by John Mahama’s lawyers, the Executive Director of the Ghana Institute of Governance and Security(GIGS) took to his Facebook page to accuse them of twisting judgements. 

The known critic of the NPP administration posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday February 3 that, “Rawlings Administration was seriously right. He can not tolerate this nonsense. Twisting judgement all the time”.

The unfortunate comment has caught the attention of the public with many describing it as an attack on the judiciary specifically the apex court. 

Reading the panel’s ruling on the application by the Petitioner to be allowed to examine the documents of the EC (1st respondent), the Chief Justice His Lordship Anin Yeboah stated that duplicates of the documents which are in possession of the petitioner, are as good as the originals. 

This ruling and previous ones have dealt a huge blow to the petitioner as it has further weakened his case and the plea for the 2020 December elections to be rerun. 

Many supporters of the NDC voiced out their objections to the panel’s unanimous decision on social media. 

Mr Agbee who prior to the elections showed his clear bias towards the NDC and John Mahama, could not hide his disappointment and in a rather reckless manner likened it to a supposed twisting of judgement which deserves a punishment like the three judges who were abducted from their homes and murdered in cold blood under the late President Rawlings on June 30, 1982. 

Mr Justice Fred Poku Sarkodee, Mrs Justice Cecilia Koranteng-Addow and Mr Justice Kwadwo Agyei Agyepong, all judges of the High Court were killed near the Bundase training camp for various rulings they had delivered in cases where involving officials of the the ruling PNDC. 

The outcome of an investigation led to the prosecution and execution of Joachim Amartey Kwei, a member of the PNDC, Lance Corporals Samuel Amedeka and Michael Senya, and two ex-soldiers- Jonny Dzandu and Tony Tekpor.
