Maurice Ampaw, a private legal practitioner, has said that the vice-presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, has no moral right to comment on Kennedy Agyapong’s recent outburst.
Naana Opoku-Agyemang on Thursday waded into the issue, likening Kennedy Agyapong’s verbal abuse of a High Court judge to the infamous Montie Three case.
The NDC running mate intimated that the conduct of the MP is a slap in the face of the law and graver than the Montie Three. She noted that a fair application of the law should see the MP tried in a court for verbally attacking a judge.
But in a sharp rebuttal on Neat FM, Maurice Ampaw called Opoku-Agyemang out for being a hypocrite.
Maurice Ampaw rebuffed her statement that the conduct of Kennedy Agyapong is graver than the Montie Three, stating that the Montie Three did not only abuse the then Chief Justice verbally but also threatened to rape and kill her.
Ampaw said that Opoku-Agyemang’s hypocrisy is one that he is yet to witness in the country.
“There is a difference between Kennedy Agyapong’s behaviour and that of the Montie Three. Prof is a hypocrite and doesn’t have the moral right to comment on this case. I can’t describe her hypocrisy. She is the last person I’m expecting to comment on this case. The Montie Three guys committed a crime. Threats of death and attempt to rape are criminal matters”.
