Wontumi wants A Plus jailed for ‘insulting’ Court judge over GH¢60K fine [Details]

Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, alias Chairman Wontumi, has filed a new lawsuit against Kwame Asare Obeng, alias A Plus.

It comes on the back of a recent judgment handed down by a Tema High Court judge, who convicted the musician and three others of contempt and slapped them with a fine of GH¢60,000.

In fresh court documents sighted by GHPage, Wontumi claimed A Plus in various social media posts made contemptuous statements against the presiding judge after the ruling.

In the writ filed on December 6, 2022, Wontumi contends that one such post of A Plus’ description of the judgment as “ridiculous and shameful”, is scandalous and a direct insult to the trial judge.

Wontumi emphasized that the action of A Plus smacks of disrespect to the court and “will lower the authority of the court in the eyes of right-thinking members of society.”

He is therefore asking the court to commit A-Plus “to prison to serve as a deterrent to like-minded persons in society.”

A Plus has yet to respond to the suit.
