Private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw has drawn a thin line between a purported leaked tape of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) boss, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah and that of the embattled National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, and MyNewsGh.com reports.
“The leaked tape of Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah can be described as an administrative error whilst that of Ofosu-Ampofo bothers purely on criminality”, the lawyer spoke on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM morning show monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
According to Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, for those especially members of the opposition NDC seeking equalization of the leaked tape of Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo and that of CID boss are just mixing apples with the oranges.
“It is will be senseless to seek equalization because the content of the two leaked tapes are not same”, Lawyer Ampaw pointed out to host of the show, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin.
The leaked tape which Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo himself has described as doctored, appears to have sparked trust issues among the top echelons of the party with leadership suspecting moles within to have been planted to destabilize the front of the NDC.
On Monday, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo on Monday March 4, 2019 refused to admit or otherwise whether the voice in the infamous leaked tape is his.
Several attempts by police interrogators to get the NDC executive speak about the issue proved futile to the extent his lawyers had to intervene and caution the police against harassing their client.
