I disagree with Dormaahene on Gyakye Quayson’s trial – Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu

Hon. Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, minister of parliamentary affairs and member of parliament for the Suame Constituency, has rejected pleas from certain Ghanaians to end the criminal trial of James Gyakye Quayson, the beleaguered MP-elect for Assin North.

The criminal trial of James Gyakye Quayson has been adjourned because it is unnecessary, according to the Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II. On Saturday, July 1, 2023, in Sunyani, he announced this at the Professor John Evans Atta Mills Commemorative Lecture for the Bono, Bono East, Ahafo, and Western North regions.

Reacting to this appeal, the legislator who doubles as the Majority Leader in Parliament told Kwame Adinkrah on Kumasi-based Pure FM on Monday, July 3, 2023, that the calls by the chief and some Ghanaians lack legal grounds as Gyakye Quayson like any person in the country is subject to the Ghanaian laws.

He suggested that we let the country’s legal system work its course to exonerate or implicate the MP.

“The Dormaahene is a renowned chief and judge, therefore his remarks are extraordinary, yet I have to admit that I disagree with him on the suggestion to dismiss Quayson’s case.

“We’re discussing constitutional issues here. Is it true that the chief would request that the case be dropped if it involved a murder charge or any other crime?

Is the revered chief implying that we should overlook legal violations? I am opposed. I believe he ought to come out and give more details.

Is it true that, as a judge, he would have denied or said something similar had the matter been brought before him? He questioned.

We should all let the law take its proper course and course in accordance with the law. Beyond that, we are not allowed to misuse the process. We may inquire as to whether the State has a case or not.

He could run for the Supreme Court since he serves as an appeals court judge. When asked at vetting, questions like this can plague him and impact the chances. I don’t agree with him, Kwame,” he said.

Furthermore, according to Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah, Gyakye Quayson’s ongoing trial won’t harm the NPP’s standing in the Assin North Constituency.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said on Pure FM, “I don’t believe that a continual trial of the MP-elect for Assin North, Gyakye Quayson, will diminish our image and chances in the constituency.
