Ghana’s former deputy Attorney General who served under former president John Mahama, Dr Dominic Ayine has been striked for contempt by the Supreme Court over comments he made against the court.
After Supreme Court decision on Monday that Jean Mensa cannot be forced in the witness box, Lawyer Ayine made a comment that the Supreme Court’s basis for dismissing Mahama’s motion to reopen his case in the ongoing election petition hearing seems as a predetermined agenda to rule against the petitioner.
The national communication officer for the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has stated clearly that the party or lawyer Dominic Ayine has not been officially served with a letter of Contempt by the Supreme Court and will respond accordingly when they get the letter.
Lawyer Dominic Ayine who is part of Ex-President John Mahama and National Democratic Congress legal counsel at the ongoing election petition was unable to appear in court on Thursday, 18th February, 2021 over what the National Communications officer claimed to be the fact that lawyer Ayine attended a funeral of a close friend.
All these informations was made available to the public through a press stand at the premises of the Supreme Court by NDC led by Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi.
