Defamation Case: Serve Ablakwa Properly With Contempt Processes – Court Tells Rev Kusi Boateng



An Accra High Court has ordered lawyers for the National Cathedral Board Secretary, Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng to use the appropriate approach in serving their writ to the legislator, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

The court believes the proper process was not employed in the clergyman’s attempt to seek legal action against the Member of Parliament.

In court today, Mr Okudzeto filed a response to the contempt application claiming that even though he has not been served, he saw a copy on social media and he has responded to that.

Mr Okudzeto’s counsel suggested that the hearing is adjourned, a move that was opposed by lawyer for the respondent who argued that his client wants to waive personal service of the court application.

The judge directed that the plaintiffs properly serve the North Tongu MP through the Speaker of Parliament, in order for the process to commence.

According to court correspondent Joseph Ackah-Blay, the plaintiff’s lawyers said efforts were made to that effect but were declined by some officials at Parliament.
