Supreme Court summons owner of Montie FM, two political activists over death threats

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has summoned the owner of an Accra-based Montie FM, whose platform was allegedly used to issue death threats to superior court judges.

The Chief Justice, Mrs Georgina Theodora Wood who made the announcement Tuesday also ordered two political activists to appear before the court for allegedly threatening to assassinate judges.

“It will start in their residences, I’m telling you, in their neighborhood. When we finish them, then it will be over. Then we will come and rule our nation because they don’t wish the nation well,” one of them is reported to have said on the radio.

The two activists Alistair Nelsfon and Godwin Ako Gunn have been condemned by well-meaning Ghanaians with some groups calling on the appropriate authorities to sanction them.

The three will have to show reason why the court should not hold them in contempt for the comments they made.

The two panelists were on Sunday interrogated by the Bureau of National Investigation after audio of their threats on judges during a political discussion on Montie FM went viral.

Allistair Nelson has since apologised for his comments.
