Head of Legal Affairs in the National Democratic Congress (NDC)Abraham Amalba says, he almost beat his partner attorney Frank Davies for endeavoring to affect him against a Judge during a court continuing.
Legal advisor Amalba who uncovered this in a meeting on Daybreak Upper East clarified that, he couldn’t show up before the Cape Coast High court since, he had focused on another High Court in Tema.
So he sent a letter to the directing Judge mentioning for new dates for the case.
The two attorneys, Frank Davies and Abraham Amalba are in court contending the instance of the double citizenship of the Assin North MP, Joe Gyakye Quayson.
As per Mr.Amalba , when he showed up under the steady gaze of the court in the following suspended date, Frank Davies demanded that paying little mind to his letter shipped off the Judge, he disregarded him the court. He contended that Mr. Amalba might have similarly called him on his in capacity to show up for the case.
“The previous week ,this matter was called and I wasn’t in court so I sent a letter telling the judge that I already committed to the High Court in Tema and so I wished that new dates are given.
So Frank Davies too was in court ,now
Frank Davies made comments in court trying to incite the judge against me, saying that ,I’ve shown disrespect to the court. What showed that I was in Tema court ? and that, that is a clear indication of a show of disrespect to the court .I also sought to set the records straight and I made it clear that ,it has never been my training to disrespect my superiors, the Judge is my superior. When has it ever been said that ,if you send a letter to court ,that amounts to disrespect?, rather when lawyers send letters to court ,asking for adjournment that rather show respect for the court .so for my senior ,Frank Davies to make those comments were in bad taste and I want to assure that I will never disrespect the court”, he said.
He added that ” And I thought that was okay ,that was the end of the matter because, he had his day when I wasn’t there and I also had my day to set the records straight .then he came back and still insisted that I’ve shown disrespect to him and the court ,why didn’t I call him?, I’m in Accra with him ,if I know I will not come, why didn’t I call him and is that not show of disrespect?”. .
Mr. Abraham said, he had a go at clarifying his reasons however Mr. Davies opposed it and demanded he was rude and raising all endeavors to discover hell for him under the watchful eye of the Judge.
“I couldn’t take it any longer so I told him I don’t eat from his house ,so if we go to the car park ,he should make similar comments so that was where tempers went overboard. The Judge instructed the police to send us out”, he expressed.
Be that as it may, the Presiding Judge had the option to chill off the tempers and the two players apologized for their offense in court.
