Massive Legal Battle As Kennedy Agyapong Challenges Jurisdiction Of Court Hearing His Contempt Case

Published

on


The Member of Parliament for. Assin Central in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong, has filed a suit at the Supreme Court challenging the jurisdiction of a High Court holding contempt charges over him.

The suit has been filed a day before he is due to appear before the High Court tomorrow [Friday] after being hauled there for insulting a trial judge at a Labour Court.

Mr. Agyapong made a statement deemed contemptuous in the case in which Susan Bandoh and Christopher Akuetteh Kotei had sued him and three others in a land dispute.

On Monday, September 14, 2020, the High Court was forced to adjourn the contempt case because Mr. Agyapong did not appear in court due to the failure of the registrar of the court to personally serve him with the summons in the land dispute case.

The judge, Amos Wuntah Wuni, explained that the court summons was sent to the office of Kennedy Agyapong and to the clerk to Parliament but was unable to reach him personally.

According to him, efforts by the court to serve the MP personally as required in cases of contempt proved futile.

Justice Wuni, therefore, issued an order of substituted service, directing that the court summons be pasted on the notice board of the High Court and the Hollywood building which houses Net 2 TV and Oman FM.

But in his suit, Mr. Agyapong says he has not been “duly served with any writ of the summons and a statement of claim on any court processes [relating to the contempt].”

The MP admits that he got “involuntarily and uncontrollably upset” when processes for the land case at the Labour Court 2 were posted on his property at Adjringanor.

This notwithstanding, he has apologised to the labour court, the presiding judge and the Chief Justice.

Since he feels his words were not directed at the court that summoned him and in lieu of the apology, the MP insists that “the said court is not seized with the jurisdiction to order the applicant to appear and answer why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court.”

We Can’t Use Taxpayers Money To Pay Customers Of ‘419’ Unlicensed Menzgold – Bawumia

Published

on


Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has affirmed that government has no plans to come to the aid of depositors with locked up funds in now defunct Menzgold firm.

Speaking on Techiman-based Link FM in the Bono East Region, Dr Bawumia noted that customers of Menzgold are not privileged to government rescue because they ignored warnings from the Bank of Ghana and went ahead to do business with an unlicensed institution.

“Menzgold is not a licensed financial institution. We are talking about licensed financial institutions but if you set up your 419 institution and the Bank of Ghana warned repeatedly that people should not do business with Menzgold because they were not a licensed financial institution, so, you can’t use taxpayers’ money to pay locked-up funds of an institution that is not a licensed financial institution,” the Vice President said.

Meanwhile Menzgold customers have vowed to rally behind National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama to win the December 2020 polls.
