Yoni Kulendi, lawyer for Dodoo told the House his client “unconditionally” and “irrevocably” apologizes for the comments.
The MPs had called on the Speaker to immediately order for the cessation of the Phase 1 of the Ebola Vaccine trial until enough consultations were made.
But their call was immediately opposed to by Prof. Dodoo. He said those calling for the cessation of trial which was being held in the Hohoe Municipality at the time lacked knowledge about the whole exercise.
The MPs who could not contain his remarks lodged a complaint to the Speaker at a plenary sitting on June 16, 2015, and prayed that he (Prof. Dodoo) be hauled before the Privileges Committee for questioning.
The Speaker after listening to the arguments advanced by the Majority Leader, Alban Bagbin, MP for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah and MP for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, granted their wish.
