The CONDUCT of Judges is what matters- Prof H. Kwesi Prempeh

Prof H. Kwesi Prempeh, the Executive Director for the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), has said that it is not what people write or say about the judges that will erode confidence in the judiciary rather the conduct of the judges themselves.

Speaking on News analysis program on Saturday, Prof. Kwasi Prempeh called on the court not to be worried about that certain people had been censorious of them in hostile ways but should rather endeavor to maintain the integrity and fairness of the judiciary through their verdicts.

Reacting to the letter released by lawyers of the Judicial Service warning the media against inciteful comments towards judges hearing the election petition and ordering them to delete certain content on some news websites, He said that when judges use the legal method, there are lawyers, academics, and people who understand and read an opinion and understand how and why a decision was reached this way.

Among others who shared their opinion on the same subject, Sekondi MP, Egyapa Andrews Mercer stated that the Judicial Service is right in seeking to protect judges from that can stir up the public against them.
