Rawlings Subpoena A Hoax Rejoinder

The VOA Africa article by Peter Clottey on Thursday 12th October 2006 “Rawlings Subpoena A Hoax” John Jerry Rawlings is by his special aide Victor Smith. He thinks he can divert attentions from the subpoena that was issued by the Honorable Williams Malley from the Chicago Cook County circuit court in U SA as fictitious. This Victor Smith is talking nonsense to the Ghanaian media that the subpoena to Jerry Rawlins is not authentic.

The subpoena that was issued by the Chicago Cook County circuit court in USA has the Judge’s name the place and the court seal numbers. It has been classify by John Jerry Rawlings aide victor Smith as fallacious. If he believe that the documents and the signatures are not authentic why didn’t smith approach the media?. He is now blaming it on the current administration. In fact, look at what Jerry Rawlings did to our former leaders. This current administration is too weak to control this former NDC member who stole millions of dollars from our state revenues and is still living in their luxury houses. By my own estimate, about 80% of all the NDC members should be in jail because of their dubious activities during their time in office.

Victor Smith says “I blame the buzz surrounding the subpoena as the work of the Kufuor led government to divert attention from problems like an illegal drug scandal they grappling with”. I challenge Victor Smith with all my convictions to classify information pertaining to the cocaine business in Ghana. It did not begin with NPP’S administration but with the (P) NDC regime where many NDC officials and Army officers were involved. Rawlings administration could not do any thing about it because they knew what they were getting out of it. Some strong NDC members are also involve with the current cocaine scandal, Victor Smith should stop talking nonsense. As a spokes person for Ghanaians who do not have a voice in our political system. I blame it on Joe Ghartey, the current Attorney general, for allowing these NDC criminals like E.T Mensah and others to be walking around and still talking nonsense. This Jerry Rawlings was 29 years old who was raise in a household without a father and didn’t have any good up bringing. He was able to join the Amy and made a coup to kill leaders for unjustifiable reasons. Rawlings has the audacity to go around the country and justify his actions. Now people like Victor Smith and others who consider Kutu Acheampong and others who were murdered by Rawlings, as animals deserving to be kill. They must think again. Their children will also seek revenge against them in the court of law. If some Ghanaians who are following this Rawlins believe killing other ethnic groups will justify their hegemonic powers, they also should recognize that nobody is afraid of them. Rawlings will face more litigation in international court very soon .As I have predicted.
