Mahama's attorneys gave many reasons why they desired the court docket must assessment their judgment on 19th, January 2021 and said a number of examples of interrogatories that occurred in court docket the past years.
But the Court gave two reasons brushing off the application for interrogatories.
1) The court docket stated that CI ninety nine makes Order 22 of CI forty seven (on interrogatories) inapplicable.
2) additionally they stated that the questions inside the interrogatories had been all beside the point.
But lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata who's the lead recommend for the petitioner back his facts, again referring the court to 2013 election petition in courtroom and made some references that had been relevant.
The excellent courtroom judges led by way of chief justice did no longer believe the famous legal professional once more.
Tsatsu Tsikata with greater information sends the court's mind to Nigeria ideally suited court on some precedence that manifest in Nigeria Supreme Court. He he challenged them at the happenings in different examples and stated that there's no in which within the CI ninety nine of the court that indicated that there ought to no be interrogatories in the Apex court docket.
Then Tsatsu tackles the first ground and argues that there's nothing in CI 99 which repeals Order 22 of CI forty seven (on interrogatories) or makes inapplicable.
The Court noticed the experience in that argument and shifted to depend on the second one floor, specifically, that they dismissed the software on the ground that the questions had been all beside the point.
Then Tsatsu challenged and crossed them there too and reiterated the questions inside the interrogatories to reveal how relevant they are to the case.
The judges were given satisfied there too and now fast sought to say that Tsatsu may want to ask the questions at some stage in move- examination.
Then Tsatsu crossed them once more with what seems to be the highlight of the day- "my Lords, if the questions are not relevant inside the interrogatories, how can they be relevant in the course of move- examination?"
After John Mahama's legal professionals that the court docket now says that he is crossing the bridge (of move- exam) whilst the time has no longer but come. To which the Tsatsu Law faculty spoke back so elegantly and said "I didn' t put the bridge there, you probably did".
I need to finish by pronouncing Mahama collectively with the NDC birthday celebration has lost it once more.
