Director of Legal Affairs of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba, has cautioned spokespersons for the 2nd respondent’s legal team, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Henry Nana Boakye to stop inciting the judiciary against their colleague lawyers.

Lawyer Amaliba accused the two of inciting the judges of the Supreme Court in the ongoing Election Petition hearing against a ranking member of the petitioner’s legal team, Dr. Dominic Akuritinga Ayine, over comments he made after a court ruling didn’t go in their favour.

The Supreme Court initiated contempt of court proceedings against Dr. Ayine; found him guilty of contempt for his “scandalous statements” and ordered him to purge himself by using the same medium he made the contemptuous comments on to render an unqualified apology.

But commenting on the issue in an interview with A1 Radio, Lawyer Amaliba chastised Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Henry Nana Boakye; urging them to learn from their seniors in the law profession.

“Some of these things wouldn’t have been taken seriously but for the incitement on the part of the two lawyers of the NPP side, Nana Boakye and Kojo Oppong Nkrumah. When they took the podium, instead of them to explain to the media their version of what happened in court, they kept hammering on that aspect of ‘predetermined- predetermined’ and it sunk.

We think that much as he {Dr. dominic Ayine} crossed the line, in our profession, it is not the case that lawyers incite the court against their colleague.”

He continued that “If they {Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Henry Nana Boakye} have just come into the system- if they’ve just been called to the Bar and they don’t know this, they should watch and learn from their seniors.”

“Those two young lawyers who have never handled a case in court, should learn and stop inciting the judiciary against colleagues.” He added.
