The three gentlemen who were found guilty by the Supreme Court for contempt and sentenced to four months in prison each are expected to be released from Nsawam Prison, Friday.

The trio, a radio host with Accra-based Montie FM, and two panellists are Safifu Maase, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn respectively.

They were granted a remission by President John Mahama after they petitioned the president to exercised his prerogative of mercy under Article 72 of the Constitution.

The president remitted their sentences on Monday, August 22, a move that received a mixed reaction.

“The decision was taken on the advice of the Council of State and was on compassionate grounds,” a statement signed by the Communications Minister Dr Omane Boamah said.

The three had threatened to rape the Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood and kill other judges who sat on a case brought against the Electoral Commission.

By presiding over the case, the three said the judges wanted to foment trouble in the country and that if the 2016 elections turned violent, they knew the homes of judges and finish them.
