Information reaching YEN.com.gh indicates that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has refused to appear before the court on Monday, September 14, 2020, as he was directed.
He was ordered to appear before an Accra High Court to prove why he should not be punished for contempt of court.
His absence from the court compelled Justice Wuni to direct the court to fix another date for his appearance, Friday, September 18, 2020.
In a report filed by Graphiconline, Kennedy Agyapong's lawyers told the court on Monday, September 14, that he was not personally served with the summons.
His lawyers filed an application that Agyapong was not personally served with the first order dated September 9, 2020, for him to appear before the court.
The court, however, ordered that for the avoidance of doubt and ignorance of the law, the summons to Agyapong should be posted on the court’s notice board and on the premises of Oman FM and Net 2 TV.
Kennedy Agyapong, was ordered to appear before the court for contempt.
Following the case, Agyapong was said to have sat on his Net2 TV to make unwarranted statements about the case while threatening the court, in a programme aired on September 2, 2020.
Meanwhile, Kennedy Agyapong apologized for his verbal attacks on the Chief justice, judges and the Magistrates Association of Ghana.
His apology didn't seem to go down well with Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang, as she called on the judiciary to give the same punishment that was meted out to the Montie 3 to Kennedy Agyapong.
