Ken Agyapong faces jail for calling judge ‘foolish’

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong might possibly be jailed after being summoned by a High Court judge Amos Wuntah Wuni for contempt.

The maverick politician cum businessman is said to have “scandalized” and “threatened” the judge and, by extension, the court in an ongoing land case.

Ken Agyapong on Wednesday, September 2, threatened to petition the Chief Justice over a judgment given when he was unaware.

Speaking on the “Seat Show” aired on Net2 TV which he owns, the Legislator called the judge “foolish” for giving a judgment on his blind side despite being the rightful owner of the land for 18 years.

“You are a foolish judge. I will deal with you,” fuming Agyapong said in the Twi language.

The Judge who is offended by the comment has issued a warrant for the MP to appear on Monday, September 14 at 10:00 am.

He’s been asked to “show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the Court”.

Below is the summon:
