Daniel Alolga Akata-Pore, known to have played a key role during the military regime of former president Jerry John Rawlings, has revealed new facts about the murders of the three High Court judges.
According to him, Rawlings was not properly investigated with respect to the crimes that were committed during that time.
Speaking via Skype from his base in London in the United Kingdom, Akata-Pore added that had the former president been investigated by the Special Investigation Board (SIB), more than was known would have been uncovered.

“When there is a criminal act and an investigation happens critical people to the incident have to be investigated. It is clear to everybody, at least at that time, everybody knew that the chairman had a lot to do about it and he wasn’t called to be investigated,” he explained.
Per a Myjoyonline.com report, he went on to say sRawlings probably knew more about the murders that Ghanaians believe, and the truth is yet to come out.
YEN.com.gh understands that Akata-Pore was one of the 10 people indicted by the SIB over the killings.
He was however not prosecuted because the then attorney general found no evidence to proceed with prosecution.
Although the former president appeared at the National Reconciliation Council (NRC), Akata-Pore said the killings would not go away until specific questions are answered.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has expressed optimism that Ghana would be a prosperous nation at the end of his tenure.
According to him, there is a clear direction with regard to where his administration is taking Ghana as a nation.
He added that his government has made significant progress in all aspects of the economy in the last two and a half years.
