The police have escorted persons suspected to be supporters of the governing National Democratic Congress out of the precincts of the Supreme Court ahead of a contempt hearing, Monday morning.
The move is to preempt possible acts of hooliganism by some of the supporters of the party who are at the Court to solidarize with two radio panelists accused of threatening to kill judges.
Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako-Gunn, together with the host of Pampaso political program on Muntie FM Salifu Maase are in court this morning to answer why they should not be held for contempt after they made threatening comments against judges of the Supreme Court.
They vowed to kill the judges if the voter’s register case being heard at the time did not go in their favour.
The owners and directors of the station are also to appear before the justices to answer why they should not be held for contempt together with the other three contemnors.
When the case was called last week Tuesday, only one of the directors was present at the court but the Justices insisted on having all the directors line up before them.
The other contemnors also pleaded with the justices to study the details of summons in order to mount a good defence, a plea, the justices granted and adjourned hearing.
But hundreds of the supporters who massed up at the precincts of the Supreme Court were in no mood for pleas or pleasantries.
They threatened and chased away journalists they accused of being anti-government.
On Monday, the supporters once again besieged the court premises, but Joy News reporter Joseph Ackah Blay reports of heavy security at the Supreme Court.
Only press men and parties to the case have been allowed entry to the compound of the Supreme Court. The supporters have been escorted out of the compound of the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, owner of Montie FM, Harry Zakour has arrived at the Supreme Court and will soon be brought before the judges.
