Madam Sylvia Fernández de Gurmendi, the current president of ICC, who took office in 2015, confirmed to the Aljazeera network his outfit has received countless petitions from across the globe including that of the late president’s biological son and some family members, pertaining to the mystery and suspicions surrounding the late president’s death. All these petitions sought for further and better investigations into the death of Ghana’s former president, which of cause made them send a team of experts to investigate the case with the normal procedure and due process followed. The current sitting president, his Excellency John Dramani Mahama who happens to be the direct beneficiary after president Mills’ death as he was working as the vice president, has been fingered in the report filed by the team of experts. Some of the people likely to be invited as witnesses in this case are the late president’s chief of staff, personal assistant, Secretary, his biological sister and son and other two key members of his government.
The Aljazeera team can confidently state that we have not had a cursory look at the report submitted by the team of experts but a deep source throat within the ICC set up whispered to us that the ramifications of this invitation of a sitting president is likely to raise eyebrows and objections as it happened in the case of Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta but they remain resolute in their quest and mandate to help and impunity for the perpetrator(s) of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community, which of course include a suspected case of assassination or attempting to assassinate a head of state.
