Tsatsu Tsikata is frustrated - NPP

The Communication Directorate of the main opposition New Patriotic Party, NPP, has described the Counsel for the governing National Democratic Congress, NDC, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata as “a clearly frustrated” man after he used what the party described as “rude” words against fellow Counsel Philip Addison in open Court.

In a statement regarding Mr. Tsikata’s “shut up” tantrums in Court on Monday May 6, 2013, the party said it was shocked that Mr. Tsikata, Counsel for the third Respondents in the ongoing Presidential Election Petition at the Supreme Court could lose his cool to that extent and unfurl such manner of “unsavoury” language at the petitioners’ Lead Counsel.

Mr. Tsikata, who did not take kindly to interruptions from Mr. Addison during his cross examination of the key witness Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, exclaimed: “Can you shut up?” in open Court in an attempt to shove off Mr. Addison.

The NPP said it found Mr. Tsikata’s outburst interesting since he “is the one who had, throughout the trial, loudly insisted on the need for his colleague learned counsels to uphold what he termed as the high ethical standards of the legal profession”.

The Party, therefore, wondered why “Mr. Tsikata would abandon those standards and rather go on the path of using unsavory words and losing his temper in the courtroom”.
