Sammy Crabbe’s suit against NPP thrown out
Suspended Second National Vice Chairman of the NPP, Sammy Crabbe has lost his suit against the NPP.
Mr Crabbe sued the party for indefinitely suspending him claiming the decision was not taken in accordance with the NPP’s Constitution.
He also argued that the Disciplinary Committee’s action was unconstitutional as it lacked jurisdiction and prayed the court to quash the decision to suspend him indefinitely.
The court however dismissed his suit on grounds that it lacked merit.
The judge, Justice Dennis Adjei held that Mr Crabbe’s claim that he was not given a fair hearing before his suspension cannot be sustained.
In his view, the party gave Mr Crabbe the opportunity to be heard but he declined. On the inclusion of Madam Gifty Kusi on the Disciplinary Committee, Justice Dennis Adjei said the Minority Leader cannot be faulted in her appointment.
He also said that the NPP constitution is not emphatic on the swearing in of persons appointed to the Committee.
Lawyer for the NPP, Godfred Yeboah Odame said the judgement is a good one and affirms the Constitutional powers of the party.
