I am disappointed in the SC ruling-Lawyer George Loh

Lawyer George Loh said the court should have been more temperate given that his clients were first-time offenders.

 

He, however, ruled out any possibility of a review of the judgment saying they stand no chance of being successful if they go ahead with such a move.

Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn of the ruling National Democratic Congress as well as talk show host of Montie Fm’s Pampaso, Salifu Maase also known as Mugabe were jailed, after they were found guilty of Contempt of Court for issuing death threats on judges.

The owners of Montie FM were also charged a fee of GHC30,000  after they were also held in contempt. They are to pay the fine before the end of day, Thursday, or risk being thrown into jail as well.Nelson, Ako Gunn and Maase were immediately whisked into a Police van and taken away to the prison where they would serve their sentence.The accused were found guilty for scandalizing the court, defying and lowering the authority of the court and bringing it into disrepute by the court presided over by Justice Sophia Akuffo.
