He said the lost heroes and heroines showed acts of selfless sacrifice and dedication to the protection of their fellow men and would never be forgotten.

The Deputy Minister said this on Tuesday at the Army Week Celebrations’ Wreath-Laying Ceremony at the Cenotaph of the Peacekeeping Memorial at Burma Camp in Accra.

Major Oduro said the gathering was a testament of the commitment to honoring the valour and deed of every single hero and heroine.

“This outward gesture is a reminder of the cost of freedom and security as well as a reflection of the pride and joy we share with those who served our nation courageously. By celebrating them, we give meaning to the cause for which they lived,” he said.

The ceremony was not only to portray the deserved appreciation and honor for the respected officers but also to promise the military personnel who continued to protect the integrity of the country that their commitment would forever be cherished and deeply appreciated.

Major Oduro commended the servicemen for putting their lives on the line in defending the nation, adding: “they have made us proud and we are blessed to have known and served with them.”

He called on all serving military personnel to seize the opportunity to reaffirm their allegiance to the service of Ghana.

“Our dedication and zeal to continue to make our motherland great will be evident in our commitment towards ensuring peace.”

Lieutenant General Obed Boamah Akwa, Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS), said the ceremony was a reminder of the unique sacrifices of men and women of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) for the nation.

It was imperative that those departed soldiers were honored, he said, adding; “This is indeed the surest bit to ensuring such sacrifices remain relevant in the lives of people in the country.”

The CDS noted that the occasion was an inspiration to clear the ideal path that could sustain peace and development, which everybody wished for.

Five wreaths were laid at the ceremony with Major Oduro laying the first one.

The second was laid by Lt. Gen. Obed Boamah and the third by Major General Azure Ayamdo on behalf of GAF.

Master Warrant Officer Daniel Addo, Sergeant Major of the Army, laid the fourth wreath while the last was laid by the Head of Army Wives Association.

USA: Wrongfully Convicted Man Awarded $1.5 Million After Spending 23 Years In Prison

Published

USA

Lamonte McIntyre, from Kansas, USA has been awarded $1.5 million after being wrongfully convicted for two murders he didn’t commit and spending 23 years in prison.

Lamonte was convicted and sentenced to two terms of life in prison for the murders of Donald Ewing and Doniel Quinn back in 1994 after both victims had been shot in midday while in their car. Lamonte who was 17 at the time was not physically present and no evidence or motive linked him to the crime.

According to The Associated Press, Lamonte has been fighting for his freedom for the past 8 years and in court documents he alleged that the prosecutor in the case intimidated witnesses after they told her that Lamonte did not look like the shooter once they saw him in person. In court documents, Lamonte also alleged that the prosecutor and the presiding judge also had a romantic relationship that wasn’t known as at the time of conviction.

His legal team also alleged that that the ‘White’ detective who investigated the murders usually harassed African-American women, including Lamonte’s.

After serving more than 2 decades for a crime he didn’t commit, Lamonte was finally discharged from prison in 2017, and in 2019 filed a lawsuit against the state of Kansas to be compensated for wrongful conviction.

Lamonte McIntyre was awarded the sum of $1.5 million this week by the Kansas state government.

“We are committed to faithfully administering the state’s mistaken-conviction law as the legislature wrote it,” “We were ultimately able to resolve all issues, satisfy all of the statute’s requirements, and agree to this outcome so Mr. McIntyre can receive the benefits to which he is entitled by law because of his mistaken conviction.”” Attorney General of Kansas, Derek Schmidt said in statement after the money was disbursed.
