Ernesto Yeboah Suffers New Setback After The 7th Adjournment Of His Recent Court Case.

Ernesto Yeboah Suffers New Setback After The 7th Adjournment Of His Recent Court Case.

The convener for the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah and his right hand man, Abeku Adams have been complaining about the unfair treatment the state prosecutors are handling the former’s case.

Among other things, Ernesto Yeboah has bemoaned the deliberate attempt to frustrate him because he held an innocent vigil whilst other parties have done same and not had any serious issue.

Ernesto Yeboah noted;

***I arrived at court yesterday only to be told that the persecution has been adjourned. Again. This is the 6th or 7th adjournment; I have sat for 5 months with this axe hanging over my head for the simple fact that I, a black man, exercised my constitutional right to gather in a black country, to mobilise over a black matter.

We must be clear. This is not about COVID safety, or about the Public Order Act – the regulations for which I and Fighters continue to stand trial.

This is a political trial.

Carlos Ahenkorah is yet to face charges for what we can all agree was a selfish, reckless action – travelling around his constituency meeting members of the public when he knew he had tested positive for COVID-19.

The NDC and the NPP have organised massive gatherings, drawing huge crowds while COVID numbers escalate and the world goes back into lockdown.

The same Ghana Police facilitating these gatherings denied a few people the right to gather for Black Lives at Black Star Square, even shooting live ammunition at them when they demanded my release. This same Ghana Police denied Fighters the right to organise a small public vigil for Madam Mariama Akua Denteh (the 90 year old woman lynched amid witchcraft allegations).

Yet this same Ghana Police facilitated the NDC’s recent vigil at Circle.

Those weaponizing the State against me know that they have no morality to hold me hostage. If a public gathering is a crime then Akufo-Addo is guilty. Mahama is guilty.

The trial of the State vrs Ernesto Yeboah is simply a public education in the reality of this rotten System vrs The People. You can be sure that, whatever the outcome of this persecution, those leading this attack on the People will want to avoid any possible political ramifications. They know the power of you, the People.

We continue to Fight. It is an honour to stand with and for the People, and Fighters will continue to present ourselves in service to the People.

Next reporting date is December 14 – seven days after the elections we are not voting in.
