The Montie 3 have declared that never again will they misconduct themselves in the manner they did.

Speaking at the premises of Montie FM in Accra shortly after their release from the Akuse Prison today, Friday 26 August, the trio said they were grateful to President Mahama for “graciously exercising his constitutional powers under Article 72 of the Constitution in our favour in remitting the remainder of the custodial sentence imposed on us recently”.

“We would also like to thank the Council of State profusely for their role in our release.

“Let us restate our sincerest apologies to Her Ladyship the Chief Justice, Justices of the Supreme Court, and the Bench in general for the unfortunate and regrettable conduct which was rightly condemned by all Ghanaians. The past month has been a difficult one for us and none of us will ever wish to find himself anywhere near that situation again. Never again! That being said, we have learned our lesson and we’ll like to reiterate President Mahama’s call to our fellow media practitioners and all who appear on our platforms to take a cue from what happened to us and be circumspect in our utterances,” the trio said.

The Montie three; Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase were on Friday, August 26, 2016, released from Akuse prison after President John Mahama remitted their four-month prison sentence.

The trio were sentenced to four months in prison by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.

The contempt proceedings came after the three allegedly made threats against the lives of Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.

A petition book was subsequently opened by pro-government group Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) to collect signatures of Ghanaians to implore the President to exercise his prerogative of mercy powers to free the three contemnors.

After spending 27 days in jail, the three can now heave a sigh of relief as the president has given them remission.
