Kennedy Agyapong has pleaded NOT GUILTY in a contempt trial after he allegedly insulted a judge.
The lawmaker’s NOT GUILTY plea came after his offense was read out to him by the court clerk.
The maverick politician was made to listen to a tape containing the alleged contemptuous comments after his plea.
He was dragged to the court by Justice Wuni to justify why he should not be severely punished for making some comments regarding a pending case.
The case has once again been adjourned to 28th September 2020.
Mr Agyapong’s alleged comments were made in connection with a land matter in which Susan Bandoh and Christopher Akuetteh Kotei had sued him (Kennedy Agyapong), Ibrahim Jaja, Nana Yaw Duodu aka Sledge and the Inspector General of Police.
While the case was still at the Land Division of the High Court (Land Court 12), the MP allegedly scandalised the court on a programme aired on NET2 TV and Oman FM on September 2, this year.
A court order signed on September 9, by Justice Wuni said, “I hereby summon the said Kennedy Ohene Agyapong per a warrant issued under my hand and seal to appear before the High Court (Land Court 12) on Monday, September 14, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. to show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the court.”
