Video: Supreme Court rejects Mahama’s application to re-open case

The Supreme Court has turned down an application filed by the petitioner, John Mahama, to re-open his case after closing it last week.

The apex court in a unanimous decision rejected the request on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.

Reading the ruling of the court, Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, said the petitioner’s legal team failed to provide any evidence to warrant the reopening of their case hence the dismissal of the application.

“We accordingly refuse that application,” the Chief Justice said.

The Petitioner’s lead counsel Tsatsu Tsikata after cross-examining his three witnesses closed his case in hopes of the respondents witnesses mounting the witness box which however did not materialise because the respondents indicated they were closing their case too.

This led to Mr. Mahama filing an application on Thursday, February 11, 2021, seeking leave to reopen his case, a request which was turned down.

The court also ruled that Jean Mensa cannot be described as a hostile witness since she had not mounted the witness box.

The Supreme Court has scheduled Thursday, February 18, to give its ruling on the Election Petition.
