Assin North MP’s bodyguard Accused Of Assaulting Bailiff
Due to an inability to serve the procedures on the challenged Member of Parliament for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson, the Supreme Court has been unable to hear a writ of summons against him for the second time.
The Court’s Registrar notified the Court at its last postponed date that two attempts to serve Mr. Quayson through Parliament had failed, and the plaintiff was instructed to assist the Court Registrar in serving the summons on the defendant.
The Registrar, Matthew Antiaye, notified the court when it reconvened today, Tuesday, February 8, 2022, that the processes could still not be served.
He informed the court that the bailiffs tried to serve the papers on James Gyakye Quayson on two separate dates and at two different places, but were unsuccessful.
Joshua Banning, a Supreme Court bailiff, described how he was thrown out of James Quayson’s office at Job 600, Parliament House, in a sworn affidavit dated 1st February 2022.
He arrived at Mr. Quayson’s office, presented himself, and proclaimed his objective, according to the Bailiff.
Mr. Quayson, on the other hand, rejected him right away, claiming that he was too busy and ordering his Personal Assistant to escort him out.
Mr. Quayson instructed his bodyguard to toss him out when the Personal Assistant was unable to do so, according to the Bailiff.
In the second affidavit, Francis Kumi, a bailiff of the Assin Fosu Court, claimed that on February 7, 2022, he arrived at Mr. Quayson’s designated residence, where a caretaker informed him that Mr. Quayson was gone in Accra and had no idea when he would return.
