The Supreme Court has been explaining why the High Court Judge, Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni, was prohibited from presiding over the contempt trial of Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong.
According to the Apex court he was bias towards the legislator due to the use of the phrase ‘severely punished’ in a contempt summons to Mr. Agyapong, who is the NPP MP for Assin Central.
It is the view of the court that by using the words “severely punished,” Justice Wuni indicated how he intended to punish the MP even before the trial commenced.
This is contained in a 31-page judgment detailing reasons why the five-member panel of the Apex court prohibited Justice Wuni, from presiding over the MP’S contempt trial.
The unanimous decision was written by Justice Yonny Kulendi. Other members of the panel were Justice Paul Baffoe-Bonnie, Justice Yaw Appau, Gabriel Pwamang and issifu Omoro Tanko Amadu.
