Spio visits Montie trio in jail

Ghana’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah has visited the three Montie FM contemnors who were sentenced to four months in prison.

Following the incarceration of the trio after they were found guilty of contempt charges, several ministers and high ranking officials of the  incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC), have signed a petition to put pressure on the President to grant them a presidential pardon.


The three had on a radio programme threatened to eliminate justices of the apex court over their handling of the lawsuit on the credibility of Ghana’s voters’ register.

Some of the NDC high ranking officials who have signed the petition include the Education Minister, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister, Nana Oye Lithur, and Tourism Minister Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare among others.

Spio’s visit follows a similar one paid by the former Transport Minister, Dzifa Attivor.

Madam Ativor in collaboration with Women for Mahama group presented items such as tins of Milk, Milo, canned fish, a gallon of cooking oil, bottles of water and toiletries to the incarcerated three.
