IGP found guilty of contempt of court

An Accra high court has found the Inspector General of Police David Asante Apeatu guilty of contempt of court.

This was after two citizens Samuel Aggrey Jnr and Augustine Gyekye told the court he had wilfully disobeyed orders to provide security for the execution of a court order for the sale of a 12 block flats belonging to them.

This case has travelled from 1988 when a woman, Mrs Aggrey (now deceased), filed the case against REDCO Company limited.

Se said the company had failed to pay an amount of money owed her. She won the case as the court in the judgment attached the property, 12-block flat at Madina in Accra.

That is to say that if REDCO fails to pay the money the court will sell the property in order to retrieve the money for her.

REDCO appealed this decision but lost. But even before the court ruled on the matter REDCO gave out the property to the Ghana Police Service to house some of its officers.The applicants then went back to court to seek an order for the police to vacate the property and rather help execute the High Court’s order to sell the facility.

But the police according to the documents available to Joy News, failed to do that, instead claimed ownership of the property.

The lawyers then filed another case citing the IGP for contempt. They argue that once the flat is in the custody of the court, it is illegal for anyone to sell or buy the property and that the police should have done due diligence.

They also argued, the police has failed to perform its statutory duty and for that matter have willfully disobeyed the orders of the court to provide security for the execution of the court order.

Justice Daniel Mensah who sat on the case said; “It is my humble opinion that the defence offered by the respondent after the applicant has successfully proved his case, is not legally tenable and the respondent has therefore failed to fully discharge the burden required to avoid a conviction and must, therefore, be committed for contempt of court and sanctioned accordingly’’ unquote.

The court will on October 25 give its sentence.
