Ayine to face Supreme Court over distasteful comments?

The Supreme Court has reportedly instituted contempt charges against Dr. Dominic Ayine, a member of the legal team of the Petitioner in the ongoing Election Petition Hearing for comments he is alleged to have made.

Apparently, Dr. Ayine accused the seven member panel adjudicating the petition of having a ‘predetermined agenda’ to rule in favor of the Respondents, that is the Electoral Commission (First Respondent) and the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo (Second Respondent).

Meanwhile, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, counsel for the Petitioner in the 2020 election petition trial, on Tuesday told the Court that he has filed two applications which are pending before the Supreme Court.

Mr. Tsikata filed an application for review of the Court’s decision on February 11 and also a stay of proceedings.

This was after the Supreme Court had unanimously dismissed the Petitioner’s application to reopen his case.

Mr Tsikata wants the Supreme Court to halt proceedings in order to hear the review application in relation to the dismissal of a motion seeking the order of the court to compel Mrs. Jean A Mensa to mount the witness box.
