Ken Agyapong to appear in court over contempt case today

Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is set to appear before an Accra High Court for contempt today.

He was summoned by the Judge, Amos Wuntah Wuni, after the Assin Central MP was seen in a video insulting the judge over a land case still before the court.

“You are a stupid judge. I will face you,” Mr. Agyapong said on his TV station Net2 last week.

He stressed: “I am not Anas to take bribe from you. I will deal with you”.

In a summon addressed to the MP, the judge asked the MP to show: “cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the Court”.

Days before his appearance before court a group calling itself the Progressive Intellectuals has called on the judiciary to punish Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong as it was done in the case of ‘Montie 3’.

According to the group, the apology from the lawmaker does not atone for his television attack on a judge.
