Pro-government group Volta Youth Alliance (VOYA) has said anyone who disagrees with President John Mahama for his remission of the remainder of the sentence imposed on the Montie 3 by the Supreme Court, should leave Ghana.

A statement issued by Shamrock Fofo Ahiable, Convener of VOYA on Thursday, 25 August, said: “While applauding President John Dramani Mahama for his giant decision in freeing the Montie 3, Volta Youth Alliance, VOYA, by this release strongly condemns NPP apparatchiks, agents, assigns, privies, and their … rented media for attacking the presidential decision.

“The Alliance is appalled by some archaic and unprincipled media commentaries that characterised the president's well-considered and apt decision.

“VOYA is by this medium, calling on all acerbic-tongued NPP operatives to desist from unleashing vitriolic commentaries on President Mahama's government.”

The president, late on Monday, August 22, 2016, freed the three men.

A statement signed by the Communications Minister Dr Omane Boamah said the decision was taken on the advice of the Council of State and was on compassionate grounds.

The decision has not gone down well with some sections of the public, who believe that the authority of the Judiciary is being undermined.

A Member of the Council of State, the body which advised President John Mahama to free the Montie three, has dared anyone who disagrees with their decision to go to court for redress.

The Montie three, Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase alias ‘Mugabe’ were sentenced to four months in prison by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.

The contempt proceedings came after the three threatened 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 they have been granted a pardon.
