The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Charlotte Osei and her lawyer Thaddeus Story have been awarded an amount of GHC 4,000 from lawyer Maxwell Opoku Agyeman.
Lawyer for Maxwell Opoku Agyeman withdrew an interlocutory injunction filed against Thaddeus Story for representing the EC Chair and that attracted a fine of GH 4,000.
Lawyer Julius Opoku Agyei representing petitioners seeking the removal of the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Charlotte Osei has withdrawn his application challenging the legitimacy of lawyer Thaddeus Sory to represent both the EC and Mrs. Charlotte Osei as a person being the Chairperson of the EC.
Kasapa FM’s court correspondent, Daakyehene Ofosu Agyemang reported that Julius Opoku Agyei in his submission for withdrawal, said the withdrawal has become necessary because his client Maxwell Opoku Agyemang has caused another lawyer to enter appearance on his behalf in the same matter in a different court.
The presiding judge, Justice Ackaah- Boafo in his ruling said he was minded to grant the application because there was no rule that stops him from doing same. The application was thus granted.
