Heavy Security At SC Ahead Of Montie ‘3’ Contempt Case

There is heavy security presence at the Supreme Court ahead of the hearing of the contempt case of journalists and owners of Montie FM.

The State security is leaving nothing to chance as heavily armed police personnel and riot control officers have been stationed at several vantage points, to control any chaos that might erupt after the hearing.

There is also the presence of Military Police Officers and sniffer dogs patrolling the area.

The security service has also mounted several road blocks to prevent sympathisers of the journalist from besieging the court premises.


The two panelists are before the Supreme Court after making threatening judges on Accra-based Montie FM.

Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who were panelists on ‘Pampaso’, a political programme on Montie FM in Accra on June 29, warned judges of Ghana’s highest court to be wary of their conduct in the case involving the Electoral Commission and Mr Abu Ramadan if they did not want to suffer the fate of the three members of the bench who were shot to death and burnt on June 30, 1982 in the era of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC).

The Supreme Court had to adjourn the case to July 18 after the contemnors argued that they were not served with the writ until the morning of the hearing day, a position which was corroborated by the court registrar.

Meanwhile, the court has also directed the entire owners of the station to appear before it today.
