We don’t respond to social media summons – Minority to Police

The Minority in Parliament says they will no respond to the suit by the Police service until they are properly served the summons.

Speaking to the media in Parliament Monday, Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu berated the police for adding names of some NDC MPs who were not part of the procession in the suit.

The MPs failed to turn up at the Accra Circuit Court in a case where the state is accusing them of breach of the public order Act.

According to Mr. Iddrisu, he and his charges do not respond to social media invitations.

The NDC MPs were charged by the Circuit Court after they walked from Parliament to the EC Head Office on December 22 to present a petition to the EC over the collation of the presidential results.

The statement of offence said the NDC MPs unlawfully assembled and conducted themselves “in a manner likely to cause persons in the Neighbourhood reasonable fear where a breach of the peace is likely to be occasioned.”

The MPs charged are Haruna Iddrisu, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, Samuel George, John Abdulai Jinapor, Rockson Defiamekpor, Ras Mubarak, Mutawakilu Adam, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, Dr. Kwabena Donkor, A.B. Fuseini, Kwabena Minta Akando, Yusif Issaka Jaja, Isaac Adongo, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, James Klutse Avedzi, James Agalga, Collins Dauda, Abdul Rashi Pelpuo, Richard Quashigah and Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings.
