These Two Judges Among The Panel Disagreed With The Rulings Of The Supreme Court On Quayson Case

Though the Supreme Court has given its ruling on the case of Mr. Gyakye Quayson today 13th April 2022 banning the MP from performing Parliamentary duties until a substantive case filed against him is determined.

But among the Panel of judges who sat on the case, two of them think the judgment of the court was not right and therefore disagreed with it but since they were the minority they could not do anything.

Five of the Judges, comprising Justices Jones Dotse, Mariama Owusu, Gertrude Torkonoo, Prof Henrietta Mensah-Bonsu, and Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi, ruled that the MP should be restrained from performing Parliamentary duties.

However, Justices Agnes Dordzie and Nene Amegatcher disagreed with the majority opinion. They took the view that the MP should not be restrained. Both Judges were appointed to the Supreme Court in July 2018.

They were of the view that the court should allow Mr. Gyakye Quayson to continue with his duties as a Parliamentarian until the determination of the substantive case was filed against him at the Supreme Court.
