I'M SURPRISE PREZ MAHAMA FREED MONTIE TRIO- FOKA



Executive Director of the FOKA MOVEMENT (FOKAM), Mr.Frank Owusu Kojo Asiamah has expressed how surprise he is to the decision made by the Prez of Ghana ,President John

Mahama to set Montie trio free,

Foka as he is popularly called inthe media scene said I'm shock Mr. Prez has bow to calls to release the convicted presenter and




two panelists of an Accra-based Montie FM.

He said ,the decision by the President to free

the trio has hamper his chances in the

upcoming December election.

“There’s no serious president in a democracy

that will cede to a call like that under our

circumstances. It is politically suicidal for

the president to accede to the call of his

party,” he said.

Foka disclosed this during an

interaction with the media in Accra, Tuesday .

The President on Monday freed la presenter, Salifu




Maase popularly known as Mugabe, and two

presenters, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako

Gunn of Montie FM who were accused for contempt of court.

The two panelists with the support of Mr

Maase threatened to murder justices of the

apex court if their ruling in a case in which a

former National Youth Organiser of the

People’s National Convention (PNC), Abu

Ramadan and Evans Nimako were challenging

the credibility of the voters’ register did not

favour the Electoral Commission.

They said if the ruling plunged the country

into chaos they would target the Chief Justice,

Georgina Wood, and Justice Nasiru Sulemana

Gbedegbe and make sure they die before

everyone else does.

These comments were made on the eve of the

34th Anniversary of the muder of three High

Court judges by some operatives of the

Provisional National Defense Council (PNDC).

The two panellists and the host were

summoned by the superior court and charged




with contempt. On Wednesday, the court,

presided over by Justice Sophia Akuffo handed

four months' custodial sentences to each of

the three men and a fine of GH₵10,000

each, failure of which would attract another

month in jail. One of the lawyers for the

convicted men, Godwin Tamakloe Edudzi, has

confirmed the money has been paid.

The owners of the radio station were also

fined GH₵30,000 and were ordered to submit

for scrutiny their programmes and policy

guidelines for the radio station.

Supporters of the governing National

Democratic Congress (NDC) were angry with the

development and called on President

Mahama to activate his powers in Article 72 of

the 1992 Constitution and pardon the trio.




Article 72 (1)(a-d) of the Constitution says the

President of the Republic, may, acting in

consultation with the Council of State, decide

to exercise the Prerogative of Mercy or just

grant amnesty to convicted people.

This constitutional provision is one of the

special powers President Mahama can activate

to grant people convicted of various crimes

pardon on humanitarian grounds or for

reconciliatory purposes and Prez Mahama has exercise that power and has freed the Montie trio .

Books of solidarity were been opened at the

front desks of Accra-based Radio Gold [a sister




radio station] at Lartebiokorshie and Freedom

Center at Kwame Nkrumah Circle to gather

signatories to pressurise President Mahama to

use his powers.

Even though some NDC lawyers expressed

their optimism the President may do

something about the custodial sentences of the

trio,Mr. Frank Owusu believes President

Mahama haa dime his political fortunes for letting Mugbie and Co out of prison .

“because of his actions towards the issue , he will be giving the

orders to all the radio stations who will raise




mayhem in this country [to go ahead and]

bastardize the courts, incite violence, threaten

people’s lives and even go ahead and get

people to carry out the threats,” he said.

Finally,Mr Foka urged all Journalist and media house to stay away from unprofessional Journalism and put the

interest of the nation ahead of any decision they made on radio / Television.
