The Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Betty Mould Iddrisu might be doing her best, but it seems it is not being appreciated.

She would be receiving the most shocking news of her life time as the National Democratic Congress government initiates moves to drop her in preparations towards the prosecution of former Ministers of state under the erstwhile New Patriotic Party administration.

Her drop would pave way for a formidable force who could put up a fierce fight in court against NPP ministers who could be cited for corruption.

Betty Mould is considered as a soft person who cannot work to the expectation of her bosses. Initially Interior Minister, Martin Amidu was penciled for the position to begin the prosecution, but because of public outcry at that time, the government felt it would tantamount to succumbing to pressure.

In a mini reshuffle which is expected to come out soon it is expected to send shock down the spines of many people. President Mills has declared the year 2010 as an action year which would see the prosecution of former ministers of state under the Kufuor administration. The decision to replace Betty, the Patriot has gathered was informed by the desire by some top goons in the party to see NPP members jailed.

President Mills in his second state of the nation address served notice that his administration would not leave any stone unturned to prosecute subsequently jail present and former ministers of state.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings had also accused the Mills administration as being slow to prosecute former ministers of state whom he had always accused of being corrupt.

It would be recalled that Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings recently at the inauguration of the National Executive Committee of the NDC asked President Mills to start prosecuting former ministers of state.

It can also be recalled that Betty Mould who went to court seeking to convict five soldiers for allegedly murdering Mr. Rokko Frimpong, finally withdrew out of the case, because to her, it was more justifiable to prosecute the initial suspects in the case.
