Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, a son of one of the three High Court judges and a military officer, who were murdered in cold blood three decades ago, has indicated that the families of the bereaved have forgiven the killers.

He disclosed this after a short wreath laying ceremony at the forecourt of the Supreme Court Complex in commemoration of the 35th Anniversary of the murder of Justices.

The Justices, Fred Poku Sarkodee, Cecilia Koranteng-Addow and Kwadwo Agyei-Agyepong were executed and burnt on June 30, 1982 at the Bondase Military firing range during the military rule of the former president, Jerry Rawlings.

Three soldiers, Lance Corporal Amedeka, Tony Tekpor and Dzandu, were named as the suspects.

The incident continues to remain a dark spot in the nation’s political history and a nightmare to many.

But speaking with journalists after the wreath laying ceremony Friday, Agyepong, who was once the General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) said that the bereaved families can only remain thankful to God for his grace and mercies.

He further asked for the “Grace of God for the remission of the sins of the architects of the crime who are still alive”.

Agyepong, however, prayed that such incidents do not repeat themselves. He also expressed hopes that the country will respect the rule of law and respect the Judiciary in the discharge of duties.
