Nana Obiri Boahen, the Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to institute punitive action against Dr Lawrence Edusei, a pathologist, who conducted the autopsy on the Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, the late J.B Danquah.
    
The former legislator was murdered at his residence at Shiashie, near East Legon, a suburb of Accra on February 9, 2016.
    
But, Dr Edusei, claimed the autopsy report is missing, a situation, according to the Police, is hampering  efforts to build a solid case against Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bosso, the two suspects, who were arrested in connection with the murder and are standing trial at the Accra Central District Court presided by Ms Arit Nsemoh.
    
A petition filed at the “Enso Nyameye Chambers”, a Sunyani-based legal firm and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), described the conduct of Dr Edusei, not only as “reprehensible” but unacceptable as well.
    
Copies of the petition, which were sent to the Medical and Dental Council and Dr Edusei, noted that the trial had “suffered numerous adjournments thereby, stultifying the committal proceedings, all because of the conduct of Dr Edusei”.
    
“I have been attending court proceedings, and I have been doing so by watching brief for the NPP, sympathizers, friends and relatives of the assassinated MP and I am ever ready to appear in person to proffer much information and evidence”, it stated.

It added that “this petition is without prejudice to whatever decision the honourable Court may take on the 18th day of January, 2018”.
