Lawyers for Kennedy Agyapong are seeking to halt a contempt case against him at the Supreme Court.
The suit filed at the Supreme Court says Kennedy Agyapong has not been “duly served with any writ of the summons and a statement of claim on any court processes [relating to the substantive land case].”
In view of this, the legislator argues that because he had not been served with the writ of summons, he could not have “engaged in any act intended to scandalise the said Land Court or the presiding judge.”
Mr. Agyapong argued further that it would have been easy for him to have been served because of his regular appearances on Net 2 TV and his availability in Parliament.
The MP admits that he got “involuntarily and uncontrollably upset” when processes for the land case at the Labour Court 2 were posted on his property at Adjringanor.
This notwithstanding, he has apologised to the labour court, the presiding judge and the Chief Justice.
Since he feels his words were not directed at the court that summoned him and in lieu of the apology, the MP insists that “the said court is not seized with the jurisdiction to order the applicant to appear and answer why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court.”
