General News of Tuesday, 5 July 2016
There is heavy Police, military and National Security presence at the Supreme Court ahead to Tuesday’s hearing in the case between Abu Ramadan-Evans Nimako and the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana and the Attorney-General (A-G).
It is the first time the Supreme Court has been surrounded by the State Security ever since the case began some months ago.
It is not clear what has triggered that situation.
However, inside sources say the two panelists, Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who have threatened to kill the Supreme Court judges if they make any ruling against the EC in the ongoing Abu Ramadan-Evans Nimako versus EC and the A-G will be brought before the Court.
Muntie FM’s Salifu Maase, aka, Mugabe, Kasapafmonline.com understands would also be brought before the Supreme Court for questioning.
The trio have accused of contempt of Court.
On Wednesday, June 29, 2016, Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn appeared on Muntie FM in a program moderated by Mugabe and threatened to kill the Supreme Court Judges if they dare pass any judgment against the EC.
In a very distasteful manner, Alistair Tairo Nelson sought to instill fear in the Supreme and High Court Judges in the country by cautioning that he could identify each and everyone’s house and will therefore not waste time to attack them if they don’t allow the EC to do its independent work.
“If this country is plunged into, all those who contributed to it – we will start from their houses. God has really opened the way for these Judges who would want to plunge this country into chaos – I know each and everyone’s house. I know where the Judges live in Accra here. I can show you …I know their quarters – the Supreme Court Judges”.
“I also know the High Court Judges. I am telling you God has a way to show … If they like, they should bring up something – it will start from their residences … I am telling you in their neighborhoods and when we finish them, then it will be over … and we will come back to govern our country”.
“They don’t want this country to make progress and so we have to assist them to go so that we who love the country will help to develop it”
“So, they should sit there if they think they are Supreme Court Judges. The Electoral Commission is insulated. Article 45 – go and check. You cannot do what you are doing. You the Supreme Court Judges – what are you doing for Ghana? Your colleagues Judges who are taking bribes – goats, GH?1,000 among others – aren’t you ashamed of this?”
“The senior Judges who are at the Bench, by this time, all of you should have resigned because of what your juniors are doing. Aren’t you ashamed? So, you invite any chaos onto this country – we are young and very agile and will not sit down for this country to be destroyed”.
“Old men and women – square pegs in round holes. You have grown pass seventy years and should go on retirement”, said Alistair Tairo Nelson.
