The High Court in Accra has directed the Secretary to the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng to use the legal process to serve Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu with contempt application.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has been a subject of contempt after he was alleged to have snubbed an injunction application that bars him from his crusade on cathedral matters.
In court on Tuesday, February 21, the court presided over by Justice Charles Gyenfi Dankwa said a contempt application ought to be personally served on the person after his lawyers argued that they have not been properly served.
“From the records before this court, the respondent has not been served with any contempt procedure and the court has also not made any order for such process,” Justice Dankwa said.
The court said, “what learned counsel for the respondent (Thaddeus Sory) procured either from social media or from learned Counsel for applicant cannot be taken as service of the contempt processes.
For this reason, the court said “all the necessary legal steps should be taken to serve the respondent for the contempt issue.”
The case has been adjourned indefinitely while the applicant was absent.
