The Assin North Member of Parliament (MP), Hon. Ken Agyapong has been cautioned and discharged by the land court 2 in the matter of the contempt case brought against him by a High Court judge, Amos Wuntah Wuni.
It will be recalled that Hon. Ken Agyapong allegedly “insulted” the judge and, by extension, the court in an ongoing land case in September, 2020, after being angered by the judge’s decision to pass judgment in an ongoing case without his knowledge.
He is alleged to have “scandalised” and “threatened” the court on Accra-based NET2 TV.
The judge then issued a warrant for the MP to appear before the court on Monday, September 14 at 10:00 am 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”.
The court after hearing various pleadings from the lawyers of the MP cautioned and discharged him of the contempt charges.
