Retired Supreme Court Judge, Justice Francis Kpegah says he will officially write to the Chief Justice requesting a live telecast of a case he has brought against NPP Presidential Candidate in the 2012 elections Nana Akuffu Addo.
Justice Kpegah, who failed to appear in court yesterday, is challenging Nana Addo’s legal credentials.
According to him, the case is of national interest and must be accorded all the necessary privileges, just like the election petition case.
“I will insist it should be at the Supreme Court for open telecast hearing. I will consult my lawyers and let them write to the Chief Justice but i personally, intend to ask for it.
This is the first major case of a professional being told that he is not qualified as he claims. Its not for the bar alone. This is very important nationally, that no non-qualified professional should hide within the grounds of his people and be practicing illegally,” he noted in an interview with Citi News.
The hearing on Tuesday was presided over by Justice Cecelia Sowah and has been adjourned to 2nd May, 2013.
