Convenors Of Arise Ghana Demo Must Be Cited For Contempt Of Court- Lawyer Ralph Agyapong (VIDEO)

A private legal Practitioner, Lawyer Ralph Agyapong, has stated bluntly that the convenors of the Arise Ghana demo must be cited for contempt of court.

According to him, once the convenors of the demonstration had filed an application at the court for stay of execution of a high court order which barred them from picketing at the Jubilee house at night , then they shouldn’t have gone ahead to stage the demonstration at all since the application is still pending before the court.

Speaking to Kwaku Dawuro on Movement In the Morning Show Lawyer Agyapong said, ” they don’t even understand the stay of execution which they filed at the court. Because once you’ve filed for a stay of execution on a high court ruling, then you have no right to go ahead with the demonstration since the court is yet to rule on your application. They cannot bring the justice of administration to disrepute and therefore must be cited for contempt of court.

In furtherance, he questioned why the legal luminaries who were involved in the demonstration decided to go ahead and stage it with the justification that once they’ve filed for an appeal then the initial arrangement with the police which the police disagreed with hence headed to court but must comply.

“The court has given its ruling and you had an issue with it hence you filed for a stay of execution, so does that mean the initial ruling of the court is no longer legitimate, ” he said.

He asked, “what were you preventing when you decided to file for the stay of execution?”

This comes after the High Court ruled that the demonstration should take place between 8am to 4pm on the route proposed by the Ghana Police-instead of running the demonstration into nightfall.

The ruling by the court followed an application by the Police which said the initial plan by organisers of the demonstration to picket the seat of government till about 10pm on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, did not augur well for the safety of the demonstrators and the rest of the public.
