You failed Mahama’ comment by judge has ‘poisoned’ petitioner’s case before judgment – Lawyer

Listen to this article

A member of the Communication Team for the Petitioner in the ongoing Presidential Election Petition, Lawyer Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe, has described the opinion of one of the Supreme Court judges presiding over the case, Justice Yaw Apau, as “prejudicial”.

According to him, Justice Yaw Apau’s comment that the 2nd witness of the petitioner, Dr Michael Kpessa Whyte “failed the petitioner”, former President John Dramani Mahama means he has passed judgement on the matter even before proceedings conclusively ends.

Harassment

During Tuesday’s hearing, Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, Counsel for the Petitioner, openly accused the court of harassing Dr Michael Kpessa Whyte, the second witness of the Petitioner.

This was after Justice Yaw Apau, a member of the panel, had sought to find out from the witness if by leaving the Strong Room of the Electoral Commission he helped the course of the Petitioner.

“You did not help the course of the Petitioner by leaving the strong room of the EC,” he said.

Mr Tsikata, however, vehemently opposed the question, saying: “The Supreme Court is harassing the witness.”
