Afriyie facing contempt

www.ghanadot.com [cached]

The summons quoted The Enquirer Newspaper of Friday July 5, 2013, reporting Owusu Afriyie as having described Justice Atuguba as a "hypocrite" and "a joker who pampers" the Counsel for the third respondent in the case, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, but "scolds" the counsel for the petitioners, Mr. Philip Addison.

...
The summons further quoted The Enquirer as saying that Sir John had said "Justice Atuguba, by his actions, was up to hypocritical antics that is intended to lead NPP not to get the opportunity to play a tape recording of the Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari- Gyan's voice, declaring that 'No verification, no vote', so that the President can win the case."
...
The question is: Why did Owusu Afriyie single out Justice Atuguba for this personal attack? Personal hatred or setting him up for other premeditated actions such as physical attacks after being blamed for the defeat of the NPP at the Court? Not inconceivable. I hazard the claim that isolating Justice Atuguba for this heinous personal attack has been the preferred method chosen by the NPP right from the very moment that the Chief Justice empanelled the 9 judges to hear their petition with Justice Atuguba as the President.
We recollect how the NPP's legal team protested against his choice (but hid behind empty rhetoric to attempt covering it up) amidst allegations verging on his relationship with President Mahama's executive Secretary (Dr. Raymond Atuguba), his being of Northern Ghana extraction just like President Mahama (meaning that ethnic ties would influence his role), and the outright hostility toward him concerning allegations that he was frustrating Philip Addison, counsel for the petitioners. Many more allegations were raised, one of which was that a delegation of chiefs from Northern Ghana had visited him to impress on him the urgency of not siding with the anti-Mahama elements to rule against him.
In other words, Justice Atuguba was set up as the bull's eye for verbal attack. Thus, utterances coming from those controlling the affairs of the NPP and the ordinary party functionaries seemed to have been specially packaged to hurt Justice Atuguba's personal integrity. He had been set up as the obstacle to overcome on the NPP's way to winning the petition.

Reading the court's terse decision on behalf of his colleagues, Mr Justice Atuguba said the EC's reliance on C.I. 78 was "illusive" because such law was not listed in the EC's manual.
