The management of Montie FM has apologised to the Chief Justice and judges in the country over the death threat that was issued to judges by some panelists on their station.

The apology comes after the Chief Justice ordered the owner of the station, the host of the controversial political show, ‘Mugabe’ and the panelists, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, to appear before the Supreme Court at an undisclosed date.

In a statement, Montie FM said: “The management of “Montie” FM wishes to render its sincerest apologies to Her Ladyship the Chief Justice, Justices of the Supreme Court and the Bench in general for the use of its platform by certain panellists recently to make statements that appear to threaten the safety of the Supreme Court Bench.

“Management condemns absolutely the said statements which it considers regretable and dissociates itself from those statements”.

Below are details of the statement

APOLOGY

The management of “Montie” FM wishes to render its sincerest apologies to Her Ladyship the Chief Justice, Justices of the Supreme Court and the Bench in general for the use of its platform by certain panellists recently to make statements that appear to threaten the safety of the Supreme Court Bench.

Management condemns absolutely the said statements which it considers regretable and dissociates itself from those statements.

Management wishes to assure all Ghanaians of its resolve not to condone any action that will in any way tend to undermine the administration of justice in our country, nor shall management condone any action that will tend to compromise the safety and security of members of the judiciary or the peace and stability of Ghana.

Management will ensure that in future, panellists who appear on the programmes of the station are circumspect in their diction to avoid a repeat of the regretable occurrence.

We will continue to operate as a law abiding corporate citizen of Ghana and will not condone any action that will tend to undermine the administration of justice in the country that we all love so much.

As a sign of our disapproval of the conduct of the panellists, Management decided to ban the said panelists from appearing on all our programmes until further notice.

Management has initiated the necessary disciplinary proceedings against the host and the producer of the programme.

Signed
Mutala Mohammed
( General Manager )
