I will not transfer your case to another judge; chief justice tells Opuni
Chief Justice, Kwasi Aning Yeboah, has declined a request by former Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) CEO, Dr Stephen Opuni, to transfer his case to a different judge.
The case is currently being heard by Supreme Court Judge, Clemence Honyenuga, who is sitting as an additional High Court judge.
The former COCOBOD boss has on two occasions pushed for Justice Honyenuga to recuse himself.
Both attempts have failed, and Dr Opuni ordered to open his defence on June 18, 2021.
However, Justice Honyenuga announced on Friday that he had received a copy of the petition sent to the Chief Justice.
Counsel said, in the ruling on the submission of no case, the judge made final determinations which can only be made in the final judgment after the accused had been heard.
Politicians will always use tactics and delay procedures to manoeuvre their way out of punishment after stealing the state. Why is he preventing the main or substantive case to be heard?
Did he steal Ghana money or not? If yes straight to Nsawam if not they should leave him. This dragging and litigation on sitting judge is just an attempt to prevent main case from been heard.
