The suit follows three legal attempts seeking to challenge the decision by former President John Dramani Mahama to grant the pardon.

It may be recalled that Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Masse who were part of a political talkshow on Accra-based Montie FM got jailed following wild threats to kill some judges whose judgements they disagreed with. They also threatened to abuse the Chief Justice Mrs Georgina Theodora Wood on the same show.

One such plaintiffs, Nana Asante Bediatuo, has described the presidential pardon granted the three as unconstitutional arguing that even though former president Mahama had the power to pardon people convicted for criminal offences but does not have same to pardon convicts for criminal contempt.
