MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has rendered an official apology to the Chief Justice, Kwasi Annin Yeboah, and other justices of the courts for making disparaging remarks about them on ‘the seat’ show on Net2 TV.
The apology came after the lawmaker was charged by the high court to report and face the law, as he was caught with contempt of the court after calling them judges ‘‘STUPID”
In a letter sighted by this portal, the MP wrote in part, “However, upon sober reflection, I have come to the realisation that without prejudice to the substantive case, my expression about the court’s opinion was harsh thus I find it necessary to render unqualified apology without any reservation whatsoever to the honourable Chief Justice, Judges and magistrates and any individual who have been offended by my uncomplimentary comments.
Thus prior to the publication of this letter, I have appeared on the same platform on the 7th day of September, 2020 and rendered same apology to the Hon Chief Justice, Judges and magistrates.
I must conclude that, I strongly believe in our judicial system and can never denigrate its integrity. Indeed I was set free by the court when I was charged with treason in 2012.
