Outspoken politician, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, is in court Friday morning to face the contempt charges levied against him by a justice of the High Court.

The hearing was intended to be held on Monday 14th of September 2020 but Kennedy Agyapong failed to show up with his lawyers arguing that he was personally not served.

The embattled Assin MP, Mr. Kennedy was then ordered by Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni of the Accra High Court to show up today with which he has honoured it.

Kennedy Agyapong arrived at the court premises thirty minutes ahead of the scheduled 9:00 am for hearing to start.

He arrived in the company of his lawyers – Kwame Gyan, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, Ralph Agyapong, and Yaw Akrasi Sarpong.

Kennedy Agyapong is facing charges of contempt after an erratic outburst against a judge who granted an injunction against him over a disputed piece of land.

BACK GROUND

The loudmouth MP said “You are a stupid judge. I will face you. I am not Anas to take bribe from you. I will deal with you” on Net2 TV.

He has already apologised for his conduct which has been interpreted by lawyer Maurice Ampaw as an attempt to escape punishment from the judge.

His appearance in court this morning is interesting because he has filed an application at the Supreme Court seeking to prevent the High Court from hearing the case.

Kennedy Agyapong’s legal representatives in a petition to the Supreme Court advanced the argument that the High Court does not have jurisdiction over the case.
