Assin North MP’s case: Tsatsu Tsikata cites petitioner for contempt
Assin North Member of Parliament (MP), Joe Gyakye Quayson, has cited the petitioner Michael Ankomah Nimfah in his case for the contempt.
He argues that Michael Ankomah Nimfah lied before the Court of Appeal when he deposed to an affidavit that the issue of the interpretation of Article 94(2a) did not arise at the trial court in Cape Coast.
Lawyer for the MP, Tsatsu Tsikata, wants the court to commit him to contempt because the issue of Article 94(2a) did arise at the High Court.
There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
