The Executive Chairman and CEO of Trasacco Group, Ernesto Taricone has admitted that he has no Court Order over Pantang Lands and hence, it is believed that the demolition exercise he carried out on the land was in Contempt of the Court process.

It would be recalled that Ernesto Taricone and Trasacco Group were suits for Contempt for setting into motion a ‘fraudulent’ scheme purporting to execute a Ruling of the Court of Appeal, without serving the Applicant by notice of entry of judgment over parcel of land at Pantang in the Adentan municipality in Accra.

Jeleel Company Ghana Limited filed the said Motion indicating that the Company has vast land at Pantang and has valid land certificate issued by the Lands Commission covering the said land.

According to the Applicant there are valid and still subsisting judgement of the High Court declaring title on the land in favour of Jeleel Company Ghana limited for another portion of the land pursuant to which the Applicant was placed in possession of the land.

Meanwhile, the said judgement of the High Court has not been set aside, hence the Applicant has been in peaceful possession of the said parcel of land and erected numerous residential buildings on the land.

“That after the Applicant was placed on the land pursuant to a writ of Possession, 2nd Respondent (Trasacco Furniture Ghana Limited) claiming that it owns portions of the land of the Applicant, applied to the High Court, Accra to set aside the writ of possession issued in favour of the Applicant, but this Application was refused by the High Court.”

Moreso, the Respondents did not file and serve the Applicant any notice of entry of judgment of the Supreme Court which is a mandatory pre-requisite for the execution of any judgement of the court.

Meanwhile on May 27, 2022, Ernesto Taricone, without any order of recovery of possession of a specific land and without serving on the Applicant a notice of entry of judgement, led a team of thugs onto the land and demolished some structures on the land purporting to be executing the judgement of the Supreme Court.

In view of that, the Applicant filed a Motion in Court to commit the Respondents for contempt of Court.

Meanwhile, in his Affidavit in Opposition to the Motion filed against him, and his company, he indicated in Paragraph 10 that, he has not executed any Supreme Court Order which makes his action on the land illegal.

He stated that, “That the Respondent admits paragraphs 10 & 11 of the Affidavit in Support and say in response thereto that the 2nd Respondent has not executed any judgement of any of the Superior Court as being alleged.”

The Respondent (Ernesto Taricone) however claimed that even though the Applicant was aware of the 2nd Defendant/Respondent’s (Trasacco) occupancy of the disputed land, went ahead to secure a default judgement dated 15th October 2019, and issued a writ of possession over the same property.
