An alleged leak audiotape of the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Ofosu Ampofo, has been sent for forensic examination.

The audiotape has been sent to Israel as the High Court seeks to get to the bottom of the case. Elder Ofosu Ampofo is standing trial at the Ghana High Court on charges of conspiracy and assault on public officers.

During cross-examination on Friday, October 16, 2020, the court was briefed by one investigator of the Criminal Investigative Department on the issue. Bernard Berko stated that the audiotape has been transferred to Israeli Forensic Science Institute for a forensic examination.

The intention of this is to determine whether the voice in the audiotape is actually that of Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
