US based Ghanaian legal practitioner professor Kwaku Asare popularly known as Kweku Azar has said that no amount of disciplinary actions or contempt trials meted against those that share their opinion on judiciary matters will silence.
According to prof Kwaku Azar, Akuritingayine is no threat to the judiciary and hence inviting him to the disciplinary committee over comments he made will only help people make credible charges of the judiciary service being partisan.
He further argued that the judiciary service are their own enemy and cases such as Ayine v AG, its failure to assume jurisdiction in important constitutional cases and its inability to rule timeously on time-sensitive cases that expose it to charges of partisanship and that risks undermining the court's stature as an independent, impartial arbiter of the law.
He advised that the only way to redeem the image of the judiciary is not to silence those who share their opinion but to fully and truly perform their duties without any fear or favour, affection or ill-will, and to at all times uphold, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.
With that done, according him, will prevent them from reacting to criticism
