The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong failed to appear in court on September 14, 2020 for his contempt charge.
His failure to show up was because he was not personally served with notice of when he is to appear in court.
A document that was presented explaining the failure of the legislator to appear in court said the bailiff indicated that attempts to serve Mr Agyapong at his office at Net2 TV and Parliament proved unsuccessful.
The bailiff noted that he spoke to Mr. Agyapong via phone, and was asked to send the document to Parliament.
The Parliamentary Service is said to have responded to the documents sent by the bailiff that they have been unsuccessful at serving the MP.
The court presided over by Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni then directed the bailiff to paste the documents on the court’s notice board and at the building of Net2 TV and Oman FM as a form of notification where it shall remain for 3 days.
The case has been adjourned to Friday, September 18, 2020.
The Accra High Court is summoning Mr Kennedy Agyapong, to appear before it to “show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court.”
Mr Agyapong, allegedly made a scandalised statement in the case in, which Susan Bandoh and Christopher Akuetteh Kotei had sued him (Kennedy Agyapong), one Ibrahim Jaja, Nana Yaw Duodu aka Sledge and the Inspector General of Police in a land matter.
Mr Agyapong’s appearance before the Court comes after the High Court’s ( Land Court 12) attention was drawn to a television (NET2 TV) and Radio( Oman Fm Station) programme allegedly aired on September 2, this year.
In the said programme, the MP is said to have “scandalised and threatened” the Court.
