It clarified that these claims were full of inaccuracies and insinuated that the composition of the panel during the appeal hearing on May 8, 2024, was irregular, questionable, or unconstitutional.

“The attention of the Office of the Attorney-General and Ministry of Justice has been drawn to deliberate misrepresentations in the media (traditional and social) about the composition of a panel to hear an appeal in the Supreme Court in a case entitled ‘Republic vrs. Dr Stephen Opuni & 2 Others’.”

Publications in various newspapers, particularly the Herald, and commentary on social media by some persons including, Prof Kweku Asare, are laden with falsehood and contain an imputation that the composition of the panel for the hearing of the appeal on 8th May, 2024 was unusual, questionable or in violation of the Constitution.,” an excerpt of the statement said.
