You Can Run But You Can’t Hide- Marrietta Brew Tells Jean Mensa

The spokesperson for Mr. John Mahama in the ongoing Election Petition hearing, Marrietta Brew Appiah-Oppong has announced that the attempt to use the excuse of human right to avoid cross-examination of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensa is untenable.

Making a case of her argument she told reporters that ‘they are avoiding or running away or avoiding the cross-examination of lawyer Tsikata.

Remember that this is an Electoral Commission that has a constitutional duty to the people, they have an obligation to account to us for their stewardship and they say they cannot take the witness stand.”

According to Marrietta Brew, she believed Mrs. Jean Mensa and her lawyers were trying to escape cross-examination by their lawyer, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata.

She said “They are avoiding or running away or avoiding the cross-examination of lawyer Tsikata.

‘Remember that this is an Electoral Commission that has a constitutional duty to the people, they have an obligation to account to us for their stewardship and they say they cannot take the witness stand,”

“Well, tomorrow we will see how our Lordships will rule on this. And the issue was raised as to whether this is a human right issue, I don’t know, this is the Electoral Commission chair, a body created by the constitution which has an obligation to respond to our question.

‘The Electoral Commission cannot hide under human rights to say they will not answer our questions. So, I respectfully disagree with her Ladyship when she says it is a human right issue, I disagree with that.’

The spokesperson for the petitioner believes they still have a strong case after the final cross-examination of their final witness Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo.
