Supreme Court Throws Out Ayine’s New Application In Suit Against Amidu

Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame, opposed the application by suggesting that the rules of procedure require the applicants to amend their statement of case rather than seeking to add to same.

A Single Supreme Court Judge, Justice Gabriel Pwamang, has dismissed a new application by lawyers of former Deputy attorney general (Dominic Ayine) seeking to add to their Statement of case in the suit challenging the constitutionality of the appointment of Martin Amidu as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor.

Lawyer for the Applicant, Tony Lithur however, argued that the Supreme Court has the power to accept the procedure they have adopted by way of seeking to add to their Statement of case instead of amending it.

The Presiding Judge ruled that the rules of procedure are clear and they cannot be bend just to please the applicants. He subsequently dismissed the application.

The substantive case entitled “Dominic Ayine versus the Attorney General and Martin Amidu” is yet to be heard by the full bench of the Supreme Court.
