Ya Naa Yakubu
The Attorney General’s Department today presented audio and video records of the Wuaku Commission’s work to the court trying the murder of Ya-Na Yakubu Andani and others.

A few weeks ago, the prosecution had told the court it could not find any records of the commission’s proceedings after the defense provided the text version of the proceedings.

At today’s sitting, Principal State Attorney Rexford Wiredu produced a box full of video and audio recordings of the work of the Wuako Commission.

He said they were in the custody of a staff at the AG’s department who after reading about the last court proceedings realized he had been given those audio visual records by the former judicial secretary.

Mr. Wiredu admitted that the 4 volumes of documents often referred to by the defence, were not different from the original tapes.

This effectively rubbishes claims by some of the prosecution witnesses that they were wrongly quoted by the commission.

So far, the prosecution has called 12 witnesses and some of them disagreed during cross examination, that they made some specific statements at the Wuako commission hearing.

But Mr. Wiredu’s admission that the documents often referred to by the defense counsel are no different from the original documents, discounts those claims.

Hearing has been adjourned to Wednesday October 27 when it is expected that another prosecution witness will be brought in to testify.
