Embattled Member of Parliament for Assin North on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), James Gyakye Quayson, has admitted that he is not afraid of going to jail if found guilty of all the accusations brought against him.
However, he asserted that he has unyielding conviction in Ghana’s judicial system and is confident that justice will be delivered at the conclusion of the trial.
Speaking in an interview on Citi TV, which was monitored by 1Family Radio, Gyakye Quayson stated that he did have a preconceived notion of committing the crimes labeled against him, therefore he would be exonerated.
“I believe in the justice system. The fundamental thing about any judicial matter is that the person intended to commit that crime. Did he plan it? I have not planned anything of the sort,’’ he said.
He furthered, “My strongest conviction is that this is just a matter of time. When you believe you have done the right thing, you shouldn’t be afraid.’’
“I trust the court will deliver a very positive verdict. I trust my lawyers; I trust the conscience of the people,’’ he added.
