The Inspector General of Police, David Asante Appeatu has escaped a possible jail term or imposition of a fine after the Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Yeboa-Dame appealed a court decision that found him guilty of contempt.
The Deputy Attorney General has filed three applications all geared at ensuring that Mr. Appeatu is not handed a jail term or fined.
Presiding Judge, Justice Daniel Mensah had earlier ruled that the IGP was guilty of contempt for willfully disobeying orders to provide security for the execution of a court order, for the sale of a 12-block flats belonging to two citizens, Samuel Aggrey Jnr and Augustine Gyekye
Mr. Yeboa- Dame informed the court they had filed an application for suspension of execution and a notice of appeal.
The other application is aimed at laying claims of ownership of the property for the Ghana Police Service.
