Bad News For John Mahama, Tsatsu Tsikata As Supreme Court Rules That Jean Mensa Cannot Be Forced To Testify

Read Time:1 Minute, 12 Second

The witness for the Electoral Commission (EC) in the 2020 presidential election petition (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa, who is also the Chairperson of the EC will not give any evidence in the witness box, Supreme Court rules.

Today saw another hearing at the Supreme Court. All eyes were on today because many anticipated the ruling that the court will bring out regarding whether the respondents were to present a witness.

On Tuesday, counsels for the parties involved in the case presented their arguments to this end.

According to the respondents, the petitioner had not presented any strong arguments and so there was no need for them to bring out witnesses.

Both counsels for the respondents, Justin Amenuvor and Akoto Ampaw argued that it behooves the petitioner to bring their evidence and not rather count on evidence from them.

Tsatsu Tsikata however maintained that since the respondents had provided witness statements there was the need to stand in the box and defend them. After the oral presentations, the Chief Justice, Anin Yeboah adjourned the court for today.

In the ruling that followed the Supreme Court maintained and ruled that Jean Mensa, the EC Chairperson cannot be compelled to testify even though her party had presented a witness statement.

“We are not convinced” Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah said.

Counsel of the petitioner, Tsatsu Tsikata then indicated that he would want to reopen their case to subpoena the EC Chair.
