Supreme Court to Determine Fate of Muntie FM Panelists & Host

The Supreme Court is today be expected to rule on contempt charges brought against two panelists of Accra-based Muntie fm and the host of the programme in which they allegedly made threatening comments.

Salifu Maase alias Mugabe, Godwin Ako Gunn and Alistair Tairo Nelson have been cited for contempt in matter between Abu Ramadan and Evans Nimako versus the Electoral Commission of Ghana and the Attorney General’s department.

On the eve of the martyrs’ day during a live political discussion on the said radio station threatened to cause harm and kill the judges over what is yet to be established.

Subsequent condemnation of their comments by various bodies especially at a time when the Martyr’s Day was being observed saw the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) call on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to as a matter of urgency arrest the two.

They were subsequently arrested from different by officials of the BNI believed to be in relation to their comments.

Meanwhile Alistair has come out to apologise and retract his comments but his colleague Godwin – who is also a member of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication team – has denied making threatening comments on the judges.

He indicates that he was never on the programme insisting that the comments attributed to him are wholly untrue.
