Montie Culprits Montie Culprits

Anyone who disagrees with President John Mahama for his remission of the remainder of the four-month sentence imposed on the Montie 3 by the Supreme Court, should leave Ghana, pro-government group Volta Youth Alliance (VOYA) has said.

Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase (Mugabe), were found guilty of scandalising the Supreme Court, defying and lowering its authority, and bringing it into disrepute and handed the custodial sentence plus a fine.

While the governing party has welcomed the remission, opposition parties have criticised the president for freeing the trio.

A statement issued by Shamrock Fofo Ahiable, Convener of VOYA on Thursday, 25 August, said: “While applauding President John Dramani Mahama for his giant decision in freeing the Montie 3, Volta Youth Alliance, VOYA, by this release strongly condemns NPP apparatchiks, agents, assigns, privies, and their … rented media for attacking the presidential decision.

“The Alliance is appalled by some archaic and unprincipled media commentaries that characterised the president's well-considered and apt decision.

“VOYA is by this medium, calling on all acerbic-tongued NPP operatives to desist from unleashing vitriolic commentaries on President Mahama's government.”
