Montie Three

Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has, on behalf of President John Dramani Mahama, presented to the Council of State, petitions received in respect of the incarceration of three persons for contempt of court.

The petitions were received from lawyers of the jailed Montie presenter, Salifu Maase, and his two guests, Ako Gunn and Alistair Nelson – who have been covicted for four months by the Supreme Court – and a civil society group Research & Advocacy Platform.

Presenting the petitions to the chairperson of the Council, Madam Cecilia Johnson, Mr Debrah said the president was looking forward to receiving the Council’s advice on the matter.

The chairperson announced that the petitions would be submitted to the Legal Committee of the Council for initial review before the Council, as a whole, meets to consider the issues.
