A Sub-Divisional Chief of Kpando Dzoanti in the Kpando Municipality of the Volta region, Fia Adjei III, has appealed to the government to grant Dr Fred Yaw Mac-Palm, a son of the land prerogative mercy.

The Chief made this call during a short ceremony to pour libation to call for the intervention of the gods and ancestors of the land to ‘intercede’ in the judicial process involving the medical doctor.

“The president has no power to intervene in the court, what he can do is to offer prerogative of mercy. This is the power I know the president has. When someone is put in jail he has the power to intervene,” he said.
