Leave the judges alone

Esi Attah, are you implying that the majority justices were scared so they ruled in favour of Zanetor? That would be dangerous for the administration of justice in Ghana. I do not believe so. My argument is that the SC made a mistake in taking over the case from the High Court. The matter should not have been turned into Article 94(1)(a) case. Even if it was Article 94(1)(a) case, the language is so plain, straightforward and clear that it required no interpretation but only an application by the High Court as succinctly outlined by the dissenting Justice Anin Yeboah.
