Did Addison Discredit Dr Afari-Gyan?

unfortunately you did not see anything vulgar and uncouth with Addison's style of advocacy.His threats on the judges at the least opportunity on their conduct against him and his threats that when he says something the judges gang up on him but they don't say anything when the respondents lawyer misbehave.

I think some of the comments above had addressed the confusion on the twenty seven and zero issue.Afari Djan was only reading what was on the pink sheet.There was no doubt that the judges were over generous to Addison and the petitioners so they were allowed to escape with murder so to say.

The unkindest cut of all was after allowing Afari Djan to bring out a question which the judges were seeking from him,the judges then allowed the petitioners to go wild and to seek to punish Afari Djan for daring to brig up something they wish he didn't.The question then veered to him as a person and matters outside the petitioners claim and the relief they were seeking.

I would have thought the judges and the ec lawyers would want to protect him from the irrelevant questions from Addison and who keep threatening the judges that if they want him to stop making his case ,he would stop.The judges wouldn't want to be accuse of bias more so to stop the petitioners from making their case and therefore allowed Addison to take Afari Djan on for an extra two days when they had indicated that they have closed their case.

Not that those two days yielded anything substantial but Djan was harassed for an extra two days because of the failure of the judges to intervene.
