Pardon granted ‘Montie 3’ upheld by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has upheld the pardon granted to the “Montie 3” by President John Dramani Mahama in 2016.

Three Ghanaian legal practitioners filed the petition against the Attorney General (A-G) challenging the constitutionality of former President John Mahama granting Presidential pardon for the “Montie 3” who were jailed for contempt of court in 2016.

Joy News Joseph Ackah-Blay reports Wednesday, November 21, that the apex court sustained the Presidential Pardon granted to the three.

One of them, Godwin Ako-Gun, was elected Deputy Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) just last weekend.

The three were convicted on July 27, 2016, but were granted Presidential Pardon in August 2016, after serving a little over three weeks in jail.

Other members of the panel are Justices Jones Dotse, Anim Yeboah, A. A. Benin, Yaw Appau, Gabriel Pwamang and Baffoe Bonnie.
