Suit by Andy Appiah Kubi Against His 1ST Vice Thrown Out



A suit filed by Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akyem North, Andy Appiah Kubi against Owusu Nyantakyi, 1st Vice Chairman at same constituency has been thrown out by the court.

In the suit, the MP was seeking the court to press charges against Mr Nyantakyi for his inability to produce a suspect he had stood surety for.

The suspect, one Prince Boateng had been reported to the Police by the MP for owing him some monies.

As a humanitarian gesture, the 1st Vice decided to go and enter bail for the suspect who was a known indigene of the town.

After getting the bail for the suspect, the first Vice was to produce the suspect to the Police at periodic intervals as stated in his bail report.

However, the Police realised that the suspect had not been coming to report himself as his bail terms demanded.

After inquiry at the Police station, the MP got to know that the suspect had not been seen for a long time and therefore decided to haul the surety before the court.

Filing a suit subsequently at the District Magistrates Court at Agogo, the MP asked the court to hold Mr Nyantakyi responsible for the disappearance of Boateng, the suspect.

At the hearing in the court, the accused said he had called to check on Boat when he realised that he was not reporting to the Police station.

Nyantakyi, the accused said he decided to call the phone of Boat but was answered by a lady who upon responding in sobs said Boateng had passed on and was in the morgue.

Last Thursday, the 9th day of September being able to produce the death certificate of Boateng at the courts the judge subsequently ruled that since the debtor had passed on the case then becomes a dead one.

The ruling thus set the 1st Chairman free and the case expunged from the books at the court.

Speaking to this reporter Saturday morning, Mr Nyantakyi said he was not bitter about the treatment meted out to him by his own MP.

“I am not bitter since the man who took me to court remains my MP but what happened gives a lesson for all to be cautious in this life”. Mr Nyantakyi stated.
