The fate of Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, will be determined today as the High Court determines a contempt case brought against him.
The case was brought against a High Court Judge who felt insulted by comments he made against him on a radio station.
Kennedy Agyapong has apologised to the Chief Justice, Judges and Magistrates Association of Ghana for insulting a judge over a land case the judge was sitting on.
His apology came after the said judge issued a warrant for him to appear before the court and show reasons why he should be severely punished.
“You are a stupid judge. I will face you,” Mr. Agyapong said on his TV station Net2 last week.
“I am not Anas to take bribe from you. I will deal with you”, he said in the video.
The summon to the MP stated that the MP should show: “cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the Court”.
But in his apology, the MP said prior to the apology, he had appeared on the same show and offered an apology.
According to him, he believes in the judicial system and can never denigrate its integrity.
