The Judicial Service has written a rejoinder to one of Ghana’s leading news portals, Ghanaweb demanding an apology and retraction of a news publication on the news portal concerning the Judge in the Kenedy Agyapong Contempt case.

In the rejoinder sent to Ghanaweb which was signed by the Judicial Secretary, Justice Cynthia Pamela Addo, the service indicated that, the story wiry the headline ” Judge In Kenedy Agyapong Case Transfered Outside Accra”, which was published on the General News page of Ghanaweb news portal on Thursday, October 15th 2020 was false.

The rejoinder states that, the Service wish to place on record that, the publication was totally false and without foundation.
