SC dismisses application against Amewu’s gazetting

The Supreme Court has dismissed an application for a review of its earlier ruling on the injunction granted by a High Court in Ho stopping the investiture of John Peter Amewu as the Member of Parliament for Hohoe.

The apex court dismissed the aces by a unanimous decision on Tuesday March 30, 2021, thereby affirming its earlier decision to quash the injunction.

In its earlier judgment rendered by a 5-member panel, the court quashed an injunction granted by the High Court sitting in Ho against the gazetting of John Peter Amewu.

Lawyer for the interested parties from Santrokofi, Akpafu, Likpe, and Lololo otherwise known as (SALL) Mr Tsatsu Tsikata was seeking to to persuade the highest court of the land to reverse that ruling.

Mr Tsatsu Tsikata argued that, there was a fundamental error in the apex court’s ordinary bench’s decision occasioned them a miscarriage of justice.

He argued that, striking out certain reliefs sought in the High Court, Ho when the application brought by the Attorney-General did not ask for any reliefs to be struck out, occasioned a miscarriage of justice.

But his argument did not find favour with the justices.
