Kennedy Agyapong runs to Supreme Court to stop contempt proceedings against him

Maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong has ran to the highest court of the land, Supreme Court to stop proceedings of charges levelled against him by an Accra High Court.

Mr Kennedy did not show up for his hearing after he has ordered by an Accra High Court. The court presided by Justice Wuni ordered a substituted service to be served on the MP for him to appear before the court today, Friday, September 18, 2020.

The lawyers for the Assin Central Member of Parliament have however sent a judicial review application to Supreme court after he was supposed to appear in and explain why he called a judge ‘stupid’.

The MP wants the Supreme Court to prohibit the High Court from hearing the contempt case and also quash the order of summons for him to appear before the court on the basis that the particular court (Land Court 12) that summoned him had no jurisdiction to do so.
