Maame Cecilia Dapaah kudos, go & face the security agencies-Lawyer Maurice Ampaw
Human right advocate and private legal Practitioner Maurice Ampaw has waded into the alleged saga of the former MP of Bantama and Sanitation minister Honourable Cecilia Abena Dapaah with regard to her stolen cash and the issues surrounding the story.
To Lawyer Ampaw, Honourable Cecilia Dapaah has commited no crime by keeping money at her Abelemkpe residence since the two political parties NPP and the NDC, the police officers, military men, business moguls, pastors, chiefs, lawyers, judges, clerks and other persons are accustomed to saving huge sums of cash at home all because they are afraid of bank fraudsters, susu collectors breaking away with people's money, unfavourable ponzy schemes etc.
Because of the aforementioned reasons, most people have lost hope in the banks and rather resort to keeping cash inside their wardrobes, backseats of cars, houses.
The astute lawyer and law lecturer condemned most Ghanaians who do not weigh two sides of any story circulating before passing judgement and to him, the former minister has been criticized unfairly since nobody has evidence whatsoever from the court of competent jurisdiction to backlash Honourable Cecilia Dapaah.
This was after details have emerged in the ongoing court case involving two house helps, Patience Botwe and Sarah Agyei. The Accra Circuit Court has revealed that an estimated $1 million, €300,000, and millions of Ghana cedis have been stolen from the home of Dapaah and Kuffour in Abelemkpe, Accra.
The accused individuals, Patience and Sarah, are facing charges of conspiracy to commit a crime and multiple counts of stealing. It is alleged that the theft occurred between June and October 2022.
Patience is also accused of involving her current and former boyfriends, as well as her father, in the illegal activities.
According to court documents, the stolen items include personal effects belonging to Cecilia Abena Dapaah, such as clothing valued at GH¢95,000, handbags, perfumes, and jewelry worth $95,000.
Additionally, Patience allegedly stole six pieces of Kente cloth valued at GH¢90,000 and six sets of men’s suits worth $3,000, belonging to Dapaah’s husband.
Lawyer Ampaw being an experience lawyer has admonished Honourable Cecilia Dapaah to go and face the security agencies as the law demands because the way and manner some politicians, IMANI Ghana's Franklin Cudjoe, Kwame A Plus are bitterly lambasting and condemning the woman looks outrageous until the woman is probed and proven guilty.
Lets keep our fingers crossed and patiently wait as issues unfold.
