Montie panelists to appear before Supreme Court today
Two panellists and a radio host on Montie FM in Accra will today, Tuesday July 12, appear before the Supreme Court to answer contempt charges against them.
Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who were panellists on ‘Pampaso’, a political programme on Montie FM in Accra on June 29, warned judges of Ghana’s highest court to be wary of their conduct in the case involving the Electoral Commission and Mr Abu Ramadan if they did not want to suffer the fate of the three members of the bench who were shot to death and burnt on June 30, 1982 in the era of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC).
Mr Nelson has communicated his apologies for making those comments but Mr Gunn has denied ever being in the studios of the station on the day the alleged threats were issued.
The two, as well as the host of the show, Mugabe Maase, have been summoned to appear before the apex court today for making such threats against the judiciary.
The notice summoning them said they should come and justify why they should not be imprisoned.
