Journalists stopped from covering Ken Agyapong’s contempt case

Journalists at the court premises hearing the contempt case involving law maker Ken Agyapong have been barred from covering the case on Friday.

According to the police in court, they have been instructed not to allow any journalist into the contempt case of the Assin Central legislator except the state-owned Daily Graphic.

Dailymailgh.com’s correspondents say all the journalists are stranded outside the courtroom right now while the case is being heard.

It is unclear who gave the orders as the judicial press corps looked quite livid over the development.

Background

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has asked the Supreme Court to stop contempt proceedings against him by an Accra High Court.

Lawyers for the MP filed a judicial review application at the apex court Thursday, barely 24 hours after he was supposed to appear before the High Court and explain why he should not be punished for allegedly describing the judge as “stupid”.
