There is a heavy security presence at the Supreme Court ahead of the trial of Godwin Ako Gunn and Alistair Nelson, the panelists of Accra-based Montie FM who reportedly threatened to kill judges
Armed personnel from the police and military are guarding the building while the three road blocks have been set up on the main road leading to the court. Armoured vehicles and police crowd control teams are also positioned in the vicinity, according to a report by myjoyonline.com.
Meanwhile, the two panelists are expected to plead for leniency when they appear before the court.
The lawyer for the two men, George Loh, told Accra-based Joy FM that his clients would not go to the court to argue, but would go there in “sackcloth and ashes to show repentance”.
The two were said to have threatened to kill Supreme Court judges if their ruling in the Abu Ramadan versus Electoral Commission (EC) case did not favour the commission.
The remarks provoked public outrage, prompting the BNI to arrest the two.
