Petitioners to complain to Supreme Court over conduct of national security

The legal team of the petitioners in the on-going election petition case, has indicated that they may lodge an official complaint to the court on Monday over moves by personnel of national security they consider as interfering with the court process.

Operatives of national security on Thursday, besieged the Supreme Court premises in a bid to provide added security for the registry where the pink sheets are being kept.

This follows a directive by Justice William Atuguba for international accounting firm, KPMG to audit all pink sheets tendered in as evidence in the case by the petitioners.

Speaking to Citi News, a member of the team, Frank Davis noted that the action by the security personnel was unacceptable.

“If national security attempted to have access to our pink sheets, then that was very, very unfortunate. We will have no option than to put the matter before the court because it has serious implications for our justice system.[The incident] tends to bring the administration of justice into disrepute. If that is exactly what they are doing, then they are interfering in the court process.”

Meanwhile, the cross examination of Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia by lead counsel for the third respondent, Tsatsu Tsikata is expected to continue on Monday.
