Human Rights Court decides fate of Sammy Crabbe today

Sammy CrabbeThe Human Rights Court in Accra will today give its judgment on the case involving the suspended Second National Vice-Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Sammy Crabbe, and the NPP.

Sammy Crabbe was suspended after two members of the party, Mr Boye Laryea and Ms Gladys Tsotso Mann-Dedey, filed a complaint against him for allegedly uttering words in the media that had the potential to bring the party into disrepute.

He was vociferous in his criticism of the party concerning the suspension of the National Chairman, Paul Afoko and the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong.

He was accused of saying he could not work with the executive members who were appointed to act in the stead of the National Chairman and the General Secretary.

Those issues, among others, according to the petitioners, were enough for Mr. Crabbe to be removed from office.

Following his failure to appear before the NPP’s disciplinary committee to respond to the petitioners’ claims, Mr. Crabbe was subsequently suspended.

Sammy Crabbe who described his suspension as an act of lawlessness by “coup makers” went to the Human Rights Court for remedy.

The court is expected to deliver its judgment today, Thursday June 2, 2016.
