The Supreme Court has adjourned to March 14th a hearing of the petition filed by the General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Mornah who is seeking to set aside some provisions in the C.I. 74 because they are inconsistent with the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.
In court, it was revealed that the Attorney General and Bernard Mornah have finally agreed on memorandum of issues paving the way for the case to be heard.
At the last sitting in court the case was adjourned sine die because the memorandum of issues had not been agreed between the two parties.
However with the memorandum of issues duly filed the Supreme Court is now ready to hear the arguments on the 14th of March.
Meanwhile before court adjourned, a private legal practitioner and one of the lawyers for Nana Addo in his election petition case Godfred Dameng, sought permission from the court to file an Amicus Curia. He explains to Citi News on a point of law he wants to make his position known to the court on the case filed by Bernard Mornah.
He further explains that he intends arguing out in court that Bernard Mornah has no case with the issues he [Mornah] is raising.
Bernard Mornah was represented in court by Benson Nutsukpui whilst the Attorney failed to attend proceedings with the excuse that he was not served with the date of hearing.
Benson Nutsukpui informed the courts that he gotten in touch with a represented of the AG who had indicated that he was not properly dressed to come to court even though as at the morning he had been made aware of the case hearing.
