The airing of the documentary ‘Who Killed The Judges’ appears to have brought back different emotions from family members and relatives of those who were brutally murdered.
The said documentary was aired on Tuesday by Joy News to give all Ghanaians a fair idea of how things unfolded during the early 1980s.
Three judges and a retired military officer were abducted during curfew hours in 1982 and subsequently shot to death.
The murdered judges were Cecilia Koranteng Addow, Poku Sarkodie and Kwadwo Adjei Agyapong.
It has now emerged that mother of the late Justice Cecilia Koranteng Addow has been reeling in pain since her beloved daughter was taken away from her.
The murdered judge’s mother is currently 104 years old, but is still in pain over the abduction and killing of her daughter some 36 years ago.
Brother of the late Justice Cecilia Koranteng Addow told Accra-based Joy FM that the judge’s mother has simply refused to let go.
“For me, judgment belongs to God so I have always told my mother to forgive but she will not,” Robert Kofi Gaisie said.
According to him, “sometimes when you try to do that she gets annoyed. I don’t think she has forgiven the killers of my sister.”
Robert, who is now 80 years, said he doesn’t believe justice was served for the cold murder of his sister back in 1982.
In his view, said no kind of justice would have been enough to atone for the loss of his sister.
“When they kill your sister or a family member, what justice do you expect?” he asked rhetorically.
Meanwhile, former Ghana Bar Association president and a Member of the Council of State, Sam Okudzeto, believes ex- president, Jerry John Rawlings has to accept responsibility for the happenings and has called on him to apologise to Ghanaians.
