Engaging in Judicial Thuggery – Sam George Alleges

Member of Parliament of Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has criticised the current Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Gertrude Torkornoo, accusing her of engaging in ‘judicial thuggery’.

According to Sam George, the Chief Justice’s decision to hear the case filed by the South Dayi Member of Parliament, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, is a deliberate attempt to delay the hearing of the suit filed earlier by Richard Dela Sky. 

It is recalled that after the passage of the Human Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, otherwise known as the Anti-Gay bill, media personality and private legal practitioner, Richard Dela Sky, challenged the bill at the Supreme Court.

Sam Nartey George wondered why the Chief justice will decide to hear the suit by Rockson Dafeamekpor restraining the Speaker to stop the vetting of the newly appointed ministers by the President Akufo Addo, which he believes, came way after Richard Dela sky’s supreme court filing. 

Taking to his X platform, Sam George wrote, “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the current Chief justice is engaged in ‘judicial thuggery’ and poses an existential threat to the dispensation of justice in an equitable, fair, and just manner.” 

He added that, he suspects some political influences at the Supreme Court, an act he believes should not be entertained as it is appears detrimental to the democracy in Ghana. 

Such partisan behaviour at the apex our judiciary must not be entertained and must be condemned with all the force reasonable people can muster.

“Judicial gangesterism is a precursor for the breakdown in the dispensation of justices and the doctrine of the rule of law,” he stated. 

According to the one of the proponent of the bill, there is a need to offer proper discretion in the process of dispensing justice.
