The Assin Central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyapong has challenged the Jurisdiction of the High Court which has summoned him for contempt of court.

To this end, his Lawyers filed a review application at the Supreme Court  Thursday, to prohibit the High Court from hearing the contempt case and also quash the order of summons for him to appear before the court on the basis that the particular court (Land Court 12) that summoned him had no jurisdiction to do so.

In his application, the Assin Central lawmaker said his comments was not against Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni of Land Court 12 but was rather against a different judge in another matter at Labour Court 2, for which he said he had duly apologized.

 Kennedy Agyapong was expected to be in court today to explain why he should not be punished for threatening to deal with a Judge who had issued an interlocutory injunction on him in a land case he’s involved in.
