Human Rights Court Dismisses Gyamfi’s Case against Ablakwa
On Thursday, July 13, the Human Rights Court made a decision about a case involving Reverend Victor Kusi Boateng, who is the Founder and General Overseer of the Power Chapel Worldwide.
He wanted to stop the North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, from talking about him in relation to the controversial National Cathedral project.
The Reverend’s lawyers accused the MP of contempt of court because he refused to accept court documents related to a defamation lawsuit against him. Instead, he kicked the documents away.
Reverend Kusi Boateng sued the MP because he believed the MP’s statements implied that he was involved in a conflict of interest and had a secret identity operating under a different name, Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.
However, the Human Rights Court dismissed Reverend Kusi’s charges, saying he didn’t have the right to bring this case forward.
As a result, the court also ordered Reverend Kusi Boateng to pay GH¢10,000.
