Chief Justice, Gbadegbe step down from Montie FM contempt case

The Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Wood, and another judge of the Supreme Court, Sulley Gbadegbe, have stepped down from the panel hearing the contempt case against owners of Accra-based Montie FM, the host of the station’s ‘Pampaso’ programme, and the two panelists, who threatened to kill judges over their handling of the Abu Ramadan suit on the credibility of the voters’ register.

According to them, they did so because their names were specifically mentioned in the comments of the three people facing the contempt charges.

The two judges have been replaced by Justice Sophia Akuffo and Justice Julius Ansah.

The Supreme Court had cited the owners of the radio station and the panelists for contempt and asked them in a letter to explain why they should not be “committed to prison for contempt of court, for scandalizing the court, defying and lowering the authority of the court, and bringing the authority of the court into disrepute.”

The two panelists in question, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, have been the faces of this controversy as they allegedly threatened to “finish” the Supreme Court judges if they made any judgment against the Electoral Commission in the court case challenging the validity of the voters’ register.
