During court proceedings on Thursday, June 20, Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ambulance procurement trial, claimed that Attorney-General Godfred Dame relied on documents he had requested from him to build his case.

Mr Jakpa asserted that these documents, which he provided to the AG, were instrumental in shaping the prosecution’s strategy against him.

Jakpa explained that the documents were part of the communications and information exchanged between him and the Attorney-General.

He suggested that the AG’s reliance on these documents raised concerns about the fairness of the prosecution’s case, as it appeared that the evidence was largely derived from his submissions.

Furthermore, Mr Jakpa reiterated his earlier claims that the WhatsApp messages submitted by the AG as evidence had been tampered with.

He maintained that the content had been altered to misrepresent his communications, which he argued could undermine the credibility of the prosecution's case.

The court, having admitted 68 WhatsApp messages into evidence, must now consider these allegations seriously as it deliberates on the weight and authenticity of the presented evidence.
