Is the Supreme Court Seeking Revenge or Administer

The precedence had already been set in the case when "Sir John" was summoned for allegedly running the supreme court down.
His lawyer of high repute, Ayikoi Otoo, though used all technicalities available to defend his client, eventually ended up pleading and begging. Though, we deem that as a way of staying safe but, the dice was cast that very day for such demeanor and apologetic natyre of lawyers to follow anytime they appear before the judges.
Another, case of interest was when Ken Kuranchie was also summoned. Together with his lawyer Ata Akyea, they refused to follow the steps set by the first comtemnors and subsequently he ended up in the prison.
Our emphasis here is to stress that, the lawyers for the defendants can not be entirely blamed. Rather a new aproach must be sought to curtail this creeping culture.
Thank you
