Montie FM Panellists, Owner, Host Appear Before SC


The two Montie FM panelists and the radio host who allegedly threatened judges in the country will today, Tuesday July 12, appear before the Supreme Court to answer contempt charges against them.

The three were ordered to appear before the apex court after a private citizen went to court following their threat.

The notice summoning them said they should come and justify why they should not be imprisoned.

The management of the station has, however, apologised to judges over the matter.

Meanwhile, their lawyer Chris Ackummey has said he will go and plead with the court to temper justice with mercy.


Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn while on Accra-based Montie FM weeks ago threatened to kill some Supreme Court and High Court judges if they ruled against the Electoral Commission in the Abu Ramadan case.

Their comments have been widely condemned. The Ghana Bar Association had earlier called for for the arrest and prosecution of the two.

The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) which is investigating the matter announced that the two were harmless saying they cannot carry through to their threats because they made them “in a show of bravado”.
