Judicial Service Staff Issue Strong Warning To Kevin Taylor Over His Attacks On Judiciary

Published

on


The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has said the attacks on the judiciary by Ghanaian broadcast journalist Kevin Taylor does not only affect the individual judges mentioned in his broadcasts but also undermines the country’s rule of law.

This follows what the association refers to as “the incessant attacks on the Judicial Service by one Kelvin Taylor on his social media broadcast, dubbed, ‘With All Due Respect-Loud Silence Media.’”

In a statement issued by JUSAG and signed by its National President, Alex Nartey on Tuesday, 2 February, 2020, the association said: “The Judiciary is an arm of state established to resolve conflicts according to law; impartially and efficiently to all manner of persons without fear or favour, affection or ill-will. The Judiciary has over the years played this sanctified role within the dictates of the 1992 Constitution. It has existed over one hundred and forty years.”

JUSAG explained that, it “exists first and foremost to play various supporting roles to ensure that the Judicial Service lives up to its constitutional mandate. The association has in the past expressed its contempt over the surge in inflammatory statements and irresponsible behaviour by some individuals and their proteges on the nation’s airwaves as well as the wider online social media platforms.”

It noted that it will “not sit-by and allow some selfish individuals to tarnish the image of the Judicial Service.”

According to JUSAG, Mr Taylor “has resorted to making wild unsubstantiated allegations with the aim of maligning the image of the Judicial Service, which we find as unacceptable and condemnable.”

Citing some of Mr Taylor’s unprintable allegations in addition to “other unsavoury attacks on Justice Sophia AB Akuffo, former Chief Justice Clemence J Honyenuga, Justice Eric Kyei Baffour,” the association described these as “totally unacceptable.”

It continued that: “Those comments if not an attempt to incite hatred among the general public, or to ridicule the Judicial Service, it is no less a blight on the administration of justice within the Republic of Ghana. Having a duty as Ghanaians to protect mother Ghana, we wish to make it clear that the attacks on the Judicial Service do not only affect the individual judges he mentions, but also undermines the rule of law that Ghana as a nation is nurturing.”

The association, therefore, admonished Ghanaians “not to buy into such unsubstantiated allegations by individuals like Kelvin Taylor who will bastardise our sacred institution in pursuit of his personal interests. The principle has always been that ‘he who alleges must prove. ‘If any individual has a reason to doubt the integrity of any member Judicial Service, the best thing to do is to follow the procedure that will allow him/her to show proof.”

It further called on all and “sundry to treat these unsubstantiated allegations with the contempt it deserves. Comments by unscrupulous persons who do not mind, send Ghana into a state of anarchy in order to score cheap political points.”

JUSAG also called on Mr Taylor to “revise his modus operandi and do the right thing by presenting proper petitions to the appropriate statutory bodies in Ghana for investigations. Anything short of this, is an affront to the rule of law, and same must stop immediately.”

‘Looks Like Someone Doesn’t Know The Judges In London’ – Sam George Teases Godfred Dame After His Case Was Thrown Out By A London Court

Published

on


MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has made a teasing post obviously directed at Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame after a London Court threw out his appeal against a judgement cost that was awarded against the state.

The Commercial Court in London denied the government of Ghana the opportunity to mount a belated challenge to an UNCITRAL award worth over US$134 million in favour of a power contractor.

The AG had argued that national elections and the COVID-19 pandemic, did not afford the state the opportunity to mount their challenge within the stipulated time, however the court ruled the argument as unreasonable.

The case which emerged under the tenure of former AG, Gloria Akufo, traveled into the tenure of current AG, Godfred Dame.

State attorneys, including Helen Akpene Awo Ziwu, Anna Pearl Akiwumi Siriboe and Grace Oppong Dolphy in Accra, have all been mentioned in the case as having failed to beat a 28-day deadline.

The failure of the AG’s department to meet the deadline means the state will be coughing up a significant amount of US$170 million in damages to the claimants; Ghana Power Generation Company (GPGC) located at 1 Airport Square Building, 7TH Floor, Accra.

However, reacting via Twitter, Sam George teasingly wrote,

“Looks like someone doesn’t know the judges in London. We just took a loan of €170m to start a bank from Germany and now we have to pay $170m in judgement debts. Maybe we can start a susu business with the change left. Ghana, my Ghana”.

We’re Working On A Law To Ban LGBTQ+ Activities In Ghana – Bagbin

Published

on


Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin says actions are being taken to enact laws that ban the activities of LGBTQI+ groups in the country.

He made this known in response to a letter from a political activist who had petitioned Parliament to amend Ghana’s laws to fight the phenomenon in the country.

“I appreciate very much your concerns about activities of the LGBTQI+ groups in the country. It is indeed a phenomenon that should not be encouraged or accepted by our society due to its eventual negative impact on society.”

“Urgent actions are being taken to pass a law to eventually nip the activities of these groups in the bud. Stakeholder consultations are also ongoing, and the results will feed into a bill that will eventually be passed into law by Parliament,” he said.
