The nine-member Supreme Court review panel on Monday said the application was dismissed because it was without merit
In a unanimous decision, the nine-member review panel led by Chief Justice Anin Yeboah said the application is “without merit” hence it is unable to grant the petitioner’s request.
Mahama was praying the apex court to review its ruling of 16 February where it dismissed his application to reopen his case. He wanted his case to be reopened in order to subpoena chairperson of the Electoral Commission Jean Mensa to testify in court as a “hostile witness”.
“We dismiss the instant application as being wholly without merit,” Chief Justice Yeboah stated.
According to the court, Mahama’s lawyers led by Tsatsu Tsikata failed to convince the judges hearing the review, adding they disagree with counsel’s argument that the earlier ruling was a miscarriage of justice.
