The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWA) Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas, has called on President John Mahama to be careful about a petition signed by ministers and government appointees on the Montie three imprisoned for contempt of court as well as not to undermine the Judiciary.

Dr Ibn Chambas cautioned President John Mahama to ensure that the rule of law is maintained.

He said a petition to pardon three pro-government communicators who have been convicted and incarcerated for contempt, do not taint the powers of the Supreme Court.

According to him, "The strengthening of institutions [such as] the Electoral Commission, and Judiciary deserve the respect of all Ghanaians in order to play their role as arbiters as referees in this election.”

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 Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.

A petition book subsequently opened by pro-government group Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) gathered over 18 million signatories from government appointees including the deputy minister of Education in charge of Tertiary, Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Agyare and the Education Minister, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.

The group presented the petition to the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah.
