Supreme Court to hear contempt case against Montie FM on Tuesday

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has set Tuesday, July 12 as date on which it will hear the contempt case against owner of Accra-based Montie FM as well as two of its panellists.

A presenter at the station will also appear before the apex court of the land.

The Court issued a summon for the aforementioned on Tuesday, July 5, when it sat on the case between Abu Ramadan/Evans Nimako and the Electoral Commission/Attorney General.

Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn on a show hosted by Salifu Maase, popularly known as Mugabe, threatened to murder the justices of the Supreme Court in the event the case pending before it does not end up in favour of the defendants, EC/AG.

The death threats by the two have attracted criticisms from the general public.

They were picked up by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) for interrogation.

The two have since apologised while Montie FM has also apologised and banned them from appearing on any of their programmes.

A statement on Wednesday, July 6 also said the host, Mr Maase, and the producer have been sanctioned.

The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana on Tuesday called for the two to be made scape goats of as their threats could plunge the country into chaos.

The two face prison sentences, or at the least fines, if found guilty on Tuesday, July 12.
