Lawyer Maurice Ampaw is keeping his promise to embark on an hunger strike in the event of the President pardoning the Montie 3, an event which occurred on Monday.
A statement signed by the Communication Minister announced the President’s decision to remit the sentences of the jailed trio on compassionate grounds.
Speaking on Adom Fm Monday night, a livid Ampaw said that he would commence his hunger strike today (Tuesday), and for ten days he would go without food and water to express his displeasure with the decision.
Ampaw also announced he’ll cease practice for a year in protest – and that he will campaign extensively to ensure the NDC are kicked out of power in December.
“President Mahama will pay dearly politically for freeing the Montie 3; he cannot do things to please his party to the detriment of majority of Ghanaians,” Ampaw fumed.
The lawyer had earlier promised that he would do all these in protest if the President pardoned the three.
