The New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Assin Central Constituency could face jail after being summoned by a High Court judge Amos Wuntah Wuni for contempt.
Ken Agyapong is reported to have “scandalized” and “threatened” the judge and, by extension, the court in an ongoing land case.
On Wednesday, September 2, the lawmaker had threatened to petition the Chief Justice over a judgment given without his knowledge.
On a program on Net2 TV, Agyapong called the judge “stupid” for delivering judgment when he was unaware of the case despite being the de jure owner of the land for 18 years
“You are a stupid judge. I will face you,” Agyapong said on the program, which was simulcast on Accra-based Oman FM.
“I am not Anas to take bribe from you,” he added in the local Twi language.
He stressed: “I will deal with you”.
On Wednesday, the judge issued a warrant for the NPP firebrand to appear on Monday, September 14 at 10:00 am.
He is expected to “show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the Court”.
