Afoko’s lawyer screams contempt of court; wants Freddie Blay jailed

Counsel for Paul Afoko, the suspended National NPP chairman, wants eight members of the party’s steering committee punished for going ahead with a committee meeting he believes constitutes contempt of court.

Lawyer Martin Kpebu paticularly wants Acting National Chairman of the party Freddie Blay jailed after he chaired the meeting in the full knowledge that Paul Afoko’s supporters had filed a writ of summons chalenging his suspension last Friday.

Three individuals believed to be sponsored by suspended NPP Chairman Paul Afoko have gone to court trying to stop the enforcement of his suspension.

The applicants are Tweneboa Kodua Emmanuel, Stephen Owusu and Joseph Oppong, all from the Ashanti region.

The three are seeking an interlocutory injunction “to restrain them from holding out [Freddie Blay] as acting chairman of the party and convening and attending meetings without the purportedly suspended chairman of the party (Chairman Afoko) being the convenor of the meetings

“… and to restrain the defendants from taking decisions in any meeting not convened by Chairman Afoko, until this dispute is finally determined.”
