“Court Dismisses Contempt Case Against UCC VC And Others, Award GH¢15, 000 Against The Plaintiff”
The Cape Coast High Court has dismissed a contempt application presented by Mr. Henry Tackie, Managing Director of Barony Construction Limited and Tacoma Construction Limited.
The applicant was seeking to commit three officials of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) to contempt of court.
The indicted officials were Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah; Director of Physical Development and Estate Management, UCC, Mr. Philip Ntim Owusu; and Head of Legal, UCC, Solomon Faakye.
Mr. Henry Tackie had filed the application through his Lawyer, Charles William Zweness for contempt before the court, alleging that the three officers of the university had seized property while a matter concerning the property was pending before the court.
However, the court, presided over by His Lordship Emmanuel Lordoh, after discharging the respondents for lack of evidence also awarded a cost of GH¢15,000 against the applicant.
