The Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong has filed a suit at the Supreme Court to stop the proceeding on a contempt case brought against.

The affidavit said “The words uttered, which I deem uncomplimentary and I have since apologised [for], were not directed at the court presided over by His Lordship Amos Wuntah Wuni.

“The Court is not seized with jurisdiction to order the applicant to appear and to answer why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court,”.

Hon. Kennedy Agyapong was suppose to appear in court yesterday, Thursday September 17, 2020 to begin the hearing of the case and defend himself for insulting a Judge presiding over a land case involving him on his television station, NET2 TV.

He also asked the Supreme Court to quash the summons ordering him to appear  before the court on the basis that the particular court (Land Court 12) that summoned him had no jurisdiction to do so.

Hon. Agyapong argues that his comments were not directed at  Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni of Land Court 12 but rather another judge at  Labour Court 2, for which he had apologized.
