The lead counsel for the petitioner in the 2020 election, Tsatsu Tsikata clashed with one of the Judges on the seven-member panel of Judges hearing the 2020 election petitioner in relation to a question posed by the said Judge to Mr Tsikata’s witness, Dr Michael Kpessah Whyte.
After cross-examination, one of the Judges asked the witness a question relating to the reason why he and his colleague who had been sent to the strong room to represent the petitioner, all left the center on the claim that they had been instructed to go and consult with the petitioner.
According to the Judge, in his opinion that represented an abandonment of duty considering the fact that their sole aim in the strong room was to represent the petitioner’s interest in that strong room.
But Mr Tsikata objected to the Judge’s line of questioning insisting that it was harassment on his client. This caused an exchange of words between the Judge and Mr Tsikata, after the said judge insisted he was not harassing the witness.
