The problem is not with Anas or his body of work, Mr. James Kofi Annan, but with our politics, lack of professionally trained and skilled security agency personnel, a poor court system that rely on the poorly trained police, BNI or CID investigators and worst of all staff within our police and courts who are loyal and pledge allegiance to party and tribe and not to country.
Under the Kufour administration with Nana Akufo-Addo as the AG and Ms Georgina Woods as the Chief Justice of the Ghana Supreme Court legal scholar and a brilliant lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata was railroaded and convicted of a crime of causing financial loss or harm to the state. The body of work by Anas should not be judged by a corrupt system nor by its damming footage but by a moral standard that should include acceptable employee culture and practices at all government run institutions. Why is it moral or a culturally accepted norm for a government official to brag or sell lies to anyone? Furthermore am I to assume that criminals with good legal representatives do not win their cases in courts the world over, Mr. Annan? Do you think it is simply a coincidence that a Nana Akufo-Addo that could send Tsatsu Tsikata to prison on flimsy and trumped up charges cannot send people who sign contracts like the one with NCA or loan agreements signed by Ken Ofori-Atta on behalf of Ghana? The president and his men are the gate keepers of our legal system now and only they can decide what rises to the level of a crime.
