Why Akrasi Sarpong was sentenced for contempt

An Accra high court on March 22,2017, convicted Akrasi Sarpong, a former Executive Secretary of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB), for contempt.

The court, presided over by Justice Charles Edward Ekow Baiden, found the immediate-past boss of the anti-drug agency guilty following his comments in a case before a high court.

Mr. Sarpong had in the June 20, 2016 edition of Daily Graphic chided a high court for granting bail to one Chief Sunny Ikechukwu Benjy Eke, 53, a businessman, and his alleged accomplice, James Eleke Chukwu, 47, a second-hand clothes dealer in Accra.

Below are details of the judge’s ruling on the case
