Kennedy Agyapong pleads not guilty, contempt case adjourned

The contempt court case involving Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has seen another adjournment. 

Mr. Agyapong is in court for allegedly making a statement deemed contemptuous in the case in which Susan Bandoh and Christopher Akuetteh Kotei had sued him, one Ibrahim Jaja, Nana Yaw Duodu aka Sledge and the Inspector General of Police in a land dispute.

On a show aired on Net2 TV, the MP is said to have “scandalised and brought the name of the court into disrepute”.

At the hearing today, Kennedy Agyapong pleaded not guilty to the charge of contempt of the High Court.

The case has however been adjourned to Monday, September 28, 2020 to allow the court and lawyers for the legislator to further deliberate on questions of jurisdiction and procedure for the case.
