Klottey Korle crisis: Ashitey’s lawyer being trailed

Lawyers for Klottey Korle MP Nii Armah Ashitey in his eligibility case against Dr. Zanetor Rawlings have alleged that one of them is being trailed by some unknown persons.

According to a letter addressed to the court hearing the matter, the situation demands that Gary Nimako, counsel for the aggrieved MP, takes time to obtain security for himself and family.

A copy of the letter intercepted by Starr News said: “We wish to humbly bring to the attention of the honourable court that, counsel for the plaintiff has in recent times been trailed by some unknown persons when driving home after work.

“The said unknown persons immediately drove off when counsel parked at the North Legon Police post to alert the police. A report has been lodged with the Police to that effect.

“In view of the aforesaid, counsel prays that the matter be adjourned to Tuesday March 9, 2016”.

The former Greater Accra regional minister is battling the daughter of former President John Rawlings in court after she defeated him in the ruling NDC’s parliamentary primary held in November 2015. His claims that Dr. Zanetor is not a registered voter has been corroborated by the Electoral Commission.
