A former justice of the Supreme Court, Justice William Atuguba, has described the decision of the Supreme Court in the Gyakye Quayson case as “scandalous.”
Delivering a lecture Tuesday [Oct 24, 2024], Justice Atuguba said the apex court adjudicated on a matter which had already been adjudicated by the High Court, which goes against the basic principle of law.
He said what was supposed to have been done was the execution of the High Court’s decision and not a fresh matter at the Supreme Court
“The decision of the Gyakye Quayson case was scandalous. The Supreme Court re-adjudicated the matter already decided by the High Court,“ he said.
