The Bill, which was withdrawn for greater public engagement is back in Parliament. The Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akuffo was in Parliament to move the motion for the re-introducing the bill.
Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, Member of Parliament for Tamale central, Inussah Fuseni explained that the bill is a national necessity hence should work effectively without fear or favour when passed.
According to him, they are just making sure that the right thing is done since there have been attempts to tie the hands of the prosecutor into the kind of corruption cases to choose.
