The Ghana Bar Association (GBA) recently release a statement, calling on Honourable Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak (NDC MP for Asawase), to establish evidence to his bribery allegation against one of the Supreme Court Judges.
The GBA condemned Honourable Muntaka’s allegations, describing it as totally unacceptable. The Association, again in their press release, dared Honourable Mohammed Muntaka to provide proof to his claim, or withdraw his allegation and apologies to the Judges.
Lawyer Fui Tsikata has also responded to the Ghana Bar Association’s statement regarding Honourable Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak allegation comment.
Fui Tsikata the elderly brother of the NDC’s lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata, in his letter to the GBA has come against the Association’s stand on the matter.
Mr. Fui Tsikata in his letter stated that, he set down his concerns about the statement issued on behalf of the Ghana Bar Association, dated January 12, 2021 regarding the happenings in the floor of Parliament, on January 7, 2021, and the allegation from an NDC MP (Muntaka Mubarak) that, a Supreme Court Judge tried to influence the vote of an NDC female Member of Parliament with offers.
In the Letter, Lawyer Fui said, in the first place, it is not clear to him, whether the National Executive of the GBA, is seeking to reflect the consensus or dominant opinion of members of the Bar or sees itself as offering leadership without particular regard to the views of its members.
Lawyer Fui asked the GBA “Is the National Executive aware that an application in the Supreme Court to lead evidence to establish a likelihood of bias against one of the Judges was dismissed and that, without such evidence being permitted, the objection to the Judge sitting on the case was also dismissed? Is it the view of the National Executive that, this is consistent with elementary principles of natural justice? Or is it not a matter of concern”? Mr. Fui asked.
Lawyer Fui added that, he is afraid that the statement released by the GBA, will only serve to reinforce the rather widespread view from the public that, the GBA is not credible or principled voice in matters on which there is a divide between political parties in Ghana.
Mr. Fui Tsikata again asked the GBA in the letter, if the National Executives are aware of the allegation, in a sworn affidavit, that agents of someone who is now in Parliament beat up a court bailiff, who was going to serve him a court order? “Is that a matter of concern and, if so, have you discussed it” he asked?
Honourable Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak (NDC MP for Asawase), has alleged that, one of the Supreme Court Judges, during the election of the Speaker of Parliament, called one of their NDC female MPs, with the promise of helping her take care of her children, and also fuel her car freely, for the next four years, only if she would accept to vote for Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye as the Speaker of the 8th parliament of Ghana. Honourable Muntaka is yet to mention the name of the alleged Judge, or proofs of the allegation.
