Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu

The Supreme Court has quashed an order of the Ho High order of injunction brought against the Member of Parliament (MP) elect for Hohoe, John Peter Amewu.

The Apex Court has also quashed another order by the Ho High Court which placed an injunction on the EC from presenting Mr Amewu to parliament as MP-elect for Hohoe.

This decision by the court followed a certiorari application filed by the Attorney -General.

In a unanimous decision today, a five -member panel of the Court held that the Ho High Court had no jurisdiction to grant the two orders.

According to the court, the orders by the Court were in the nature of parliamentary election petition, but the original case which led to the orders were a human rights violation case therefore the Ho High Court had no jurisdiction.

Consequently, the Court quashed all the proceedings on December 23, 2002 during which the Ho High Court, presided over by Justice George Buadi granted those two interim orders.
