A suspended Founding Member of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Charles Wereko Brobbey has lashed out at the President for giving the ‘Montie 3’ remission saying the move was senseless.
He added that, the President acted upon the powers the constitution invested in him thus legally he did nothing wrong.
President John Mahama in consultation with the Council of State and in exercise of his constitutional powers under Article 72 of the Constitution remitted the remaining prison sentence imposed on three persons: Salifu Maase (alias Mugabe), Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn who were sentenced to four months imprisonment and a fine of GHȻ10,000.00 each for contempt of court. The remission is effective 26th August 2016.
The three were sentenced on 27th July 2016 and have served part of the prison sentences imposed on them.
Expressing his frustrations on the matter, Dr Charles Wereko Brobbey popularly known as Tarzan stated that, he sees no sense in the action that the President has taken as he believe it was a bad dicision.
Tarzan added that, the President upon the power of the Constitution has every right to free the trio but logically it doesn’t sound well saying the move by the President has set a bad precedence for everybody else to follow suit as he believes it is senseless.
