It seems the controversial and loud mouth Member of Parliament for Assin Central Hon. Kennedy Agyapong seem to be in more dept after his case against Abdul Malik Kweku Baako was thrown out of Court last Friday
It could recall that Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe from the Accra High Court found Hon. Kennedy Agaypong Guilty for defaming Editor In Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper Abdul Malik Kweku Baako.
Hon. Kennedy Agyapong was given up to 30 days to retract and apologize three times on the same platform he used to defame the journalist , he was also fined GHS100,000 in damages plus the cost of GHS30,000.
Lawyers of the Member of Parliament have disclosed that they will appeal the decision of the court moment after the court ruled in favor of the Journalist.
The member of Parliament was again slapped with another GHS3,00 by Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe (Mrs) after the case was thrown out yesterday.
She said while delivering her ruling yesterday : “After assessing the entire case of the Applicant, I see no exceptional circumstance or no demonstration of any peculiar error resulting in a substantial miscarriage of justice such as would merit the grant of the instant application for stay of execution. This court is even more fortified in its position considering the fact that the parities lawyers have had the entire proceeding of the court made available to them, even before they required to file their written submissions and as such they have had the chance to thoroughly study the record.
“Clearly the, they are in pole position to raise any arguable points in the appeal and in support of this application. This counsel for application has failed to do to the satisfaction of the court”
