Also to appear before the apex court are the owners of Montie FM who were absent at the last hearing necessitating an adjournment.

The Supreme court last Tuesday, July 12 adjourned the hearing following the absence of top-notch officials of the Station in court.

The court had then requested all the directors and share holders to appear before it today, July 18 as it said it could not hear the case with just one Edward Addo who represented the owners said to be outside the jurisdiction.

Two Montie FM panelists and political show host, Maase Salifu who threatened justices of the Supreme court are currently before the Supreme answering contempt charges against them.

The two, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn during a political current affairs programme on Montie FM reportedly made threats of harm and death against the judges in the case involving the Electoral Commission and Mr Abu Ramadan.

While Alistair has come out to apologise and retract his comments, Godwin –  who is a member of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication team – has denied making threatening comments on the judges.
