The Court has adjourned a contempt case against Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong.
A contempt case against New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong has been adjourned.
The Cocoa Affairs High Court in Accra adjourned the case to Friday, 17 April, 2015 after the two appeared to respond to the contempt charges brought against them by three NPP members.
Kwame Owusu Ansah, Sarpong Kumankuma and Anthony Gyamfi Ameyaw sued the two leaders of the party to compel them re-run elections in the Juaben, Kumawu and Manhyia constituency.
The Supreme Court unanimously dismissed an application for certiorari brought by the NPP Kumawu chairman, Joseph Danso, against the settlement reached between the party and its members in the three constituencies.
According to the application for contempt, the applicants said the national officers of the NPP are deliberately refusing to carry-out the court’s orders even after several written reminders.
The court is expected to rule on the case on Friday when they re-appear.
