Minority Leader, 19 other NDC MPs Fail To Appear In Courtourt POLITICS - Mcee Carthy

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu and his 19 other colleague Members of Parliament who were expected to appear before an Accra Circuit Court over their protest march to the Electoral Commission head office on Monday failed to appear in court.

The police prosecutor indicated his readiness to proceed with the case when it was called but the failure of none of the accused persons or their lawyers present forced the presiding judge to adjourn the case without a new set date.

The NDC MPs were charged by the Circuit Court after they walked from Parliament to the EC Head Office on December 22 to present a petition to the EC over the collation of the presidential results.

The statement of offence said the NDC MPs unlawfully assembled and conducted themselves “in a manner likely to cause persons in the Neighbourhood reasonable fear where a breach of the peace is likely to be occasioned.”
