Petition Contempt

The Supreme Court on Thursday discharged Dr Dominic A. Anyine, a member of the Petitioner’s communication team, of contempt charge.

Dr Ayine admitted making scandalous statements about the Supreme Court panel hearing the Election Petition after the Court had delivered it’s ruling on February 16.

He was said to have stated that the Supreme Court had a “predetermined agenda” to rule against the petitioner.

On February 22, this year, the Supreme Court conducted contempt proceedings against him and ordered him to retract the comments before Thursday, February 25.

Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah, presiding during sitting on Thursday, stated that his colleagues on the panel informed him that Dr Ayine had retracted the comments.

The Court commended Dr Ayine for being candid and not prolonging issues.

Mr Frank Beechem, Counsel for Dr Ayine, lauded the Court for its magnanimity, adding, “We will sin no more.”

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
