Hanna Tetteh argues that she would continue to express her  disappointment with the sentence but would not necessarily back calls for President Mahama to execute his presidential pardon.

Asked why she did not sign a petition to appeal to the President to exercise his prerogative of mercy in an interview with Bernard Avle on Ghana Report on Viasat One, this was her response:

“ I don’t think it is for me to do that are entitled to do[sign the petition] so if they so wish. If this becomes a precedence so that going forward, everybody else who is seen to have spoken contemptuously of the court gets four months and above, well then I guess it is a principle that we can all accept. I have already said that I think the sentence is harsh. I think that if the President could reduce their sentence, it will be welcomed.”
