Lobby group wants JJ’s unconditional immunity scrapped 11/25/2005
A new lobby group Concerned Youth of Ghana (CYG) established in Kumasi is demanding that former President Rawlings’ conditional immunity be scrapped.

Members of the group say they are looking forward to the day former president Jerry Rawlings would be called upon to answer charges relating to some atrocities he committed against humanity during the PNDC and NDC regimes.

According to the group the indemnity clause in the Constitution will one day be removed to make the ex president liable for prosecution and that criminal laws has no time bound.

Spokesperson for the group, John Owusu Boakye told LUV News at a news conference in Kumasi on Thursday that, the former president committed treason in 1981 for overthrowing an elected government headed by President of the third Republic, Dr Hilla Limann.

The news conference was in protest of persistent verbal attacks and unwarranted utterances by ex president Rawlings against the NPP and President Kufuor.

The accused Mr Rawlings of making probity and accountability non-existent during his administration and that his continued verbal attacks on the Presidency portray greed on his part.

They said the former president and first lady undertook over 500 foreign trips between 1982 and 2000 but the impact on the nation comes no where near the benefits of the less than 100 of such travels embarked upon by President Kufuor.
