Accra, Oct. 9, GNA - A Counter suit filed by Mr Maxwell Opoku Agyemang, a Law Lecturer against Mrs Charlotte Osei, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission has been withdrawn.
Mr Opoku Agyemang, who represented some petitioners, seeking Mrs Osei’s impeachment, was sued by the EC boss for defamation.
However, Mr Opoku Agyemang in an Interlocutory Injunction prayed the court to stop Mr Thaddeus Sory from acting as Solicitor for the EC Boss in the defamation case.
The Law Lecturer held that engaging Mr Sory’s firm by Mrs Osei was part of the petition on her impeachment and that Mr Sory’s firm must not represent her.
Appearing before the High Court on Monday, one of the Lawyers of Mr Opoku Agyemang, Mr Julius Opoku Agyei explained that their client, (Mr Opoku Agyemang) had instructed another lawyer to enter appearance in the same matter in a different court.
The Court presided over by Mr Justice Kweku Ackah–Boafo granted the application for withdrawal saying that there was no rule that prevented them from doing so.
The court however awarded cost of GH¢ 4,000.00 cedis against Mr Opoku Agyemang.
