“The learned trial Judge erred when she held that the words spoken by the 1st Defendant (Ernest Owusu Bempah) in the heat of passion on a political discourse between the 1st Defendant and the NDC Panelist was actionable in a defamation suit.”
The above is one of the arguments lawyers for director of Communications for the Ghana Gas Company Limited, Ernest Owusu Bempah will be making in their appeal against a court ruling on Ibrahim Mahama’s defamation case.
Mr Bempah filed the appeal against a judgment of her Ladyship Georgina Mensah-Datsa dated 18th October, 2019.
The second argument of his appeal is that:
“The learned trial Judge erred when she failed to properly evaluate the evidence before the court in totality considering the derogatory statements made by the NDC Panellist against the 1st Defendant which led to the statement uttered by the 1st Defendant.”The judgement is against the weight of evidence,” the appeal signed by his lawyer, Gary Nimako Marfo of Safo and Marfo @ Law stated.
The Director of Communications for the Ghana is seeking “an order reversing the judgement of the High Court.”
