The Supreme Court has prohibited Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni, a Justice of the High Court, from presiding over the contempt trial of the New Patriotic Party MP for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong.
A five-member panel of the apex court has, however, ordered the Registrar of the High Court to place the trial before another High Court, presided over by another judge.
According to the court, Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni is prohibited from hearing the matter any further.
This was after lawyers for the MP had accused the Judge of demonstrating hostility towards them.
The Supreme Court gave the order today, Wednesday, October 14, 2020.
His lawyer Alexander Afenyo Markin speaking to the media after the order said the Justices of the Supreme Court referenced the Montie 3 case.
He said the Justices said the affected judges did not sit on the Montie 3 contempt case hence the decision.
The case was heard by Justices Baffoe Bonnie, Yaw Appau, Gabriel Pwamang, Amadu Tanko, and Yonni Kulendi.
