The Supreme Court has cautioned Professor Michael Kpessa-Whyte who is a Lecturer at the University of Ghana and a also member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
This was after the highest court of the land considered the apology. The apex court has accordingly discharged him.
The five-member panel of the Supreme Court presided over by Justice Mariama Owusu convicted him for contempt on Tuesday, May 30 for scandalizing the court.
Prof Kpessa-Whyte initially pleaded not guilty to the charge of scandalising the court.
In a recent Twitter post referred to the Supreme Court as a “Stupid Court”. He later clarified that he did not intend to scandalise the Supreme Court and apologised accordingly.
He stated that he had no reason to slander the court and acknowledged any pain or discomfort his tweets may have caused the Chief Justice, the Supreme Court, and the entire judiciary.
“Please permit me to state unequivocally that I have no reason to slander our Supreme Court, and I hereby sincerely apologise unreservedly for any pain and discomfort my tweets may have caused the Chief Justice, the Supreme Court, and the entire judiciary.
