Parliament will today decide on a report by the Privileges Committee on investigations into contempt against Professor Alex Dodoo and broadcaster, Blakk Rasta.

The two have already appeared before the committee over comments they made on radio deemed by the law makers as an affront to the dignity of the House.

Professor Alex Dodoo who is also the Head of the Global Vaccines Safety Initiative was last week dragged before the Committee after criticizing MPs of being uninformed about the Ebola vaccine trial in the Volta region.

Blakk Rasta also claimed during a radio interview that 80 percent of Parliamentarians smoke marijuana or weed.

When they appeared before the Privileges Committee they both apologized profusely for their comments.

A member of the Privileges Committee, Emmanuel Bedzrah,, told Joy FM that MPs are taking comments made by the Professor Dodoo and Blakk Rasta seriously.

According to a letter addressed to Prof. Dodoo, he is scheduled to appear before the Committee on Thursday, July 23, 2015.

“You are kindly invited to attend Parliament on Thursday 23rd July, 2015 at noon in connection with the alleged contemptuous remarks you made against Members of Parliament (MPs) on the suspended phase one Ebola Vaccine trial in the country.

Again you are kindly reminded of your right to be represented by a counsel of your choice on the said date and time,” the letter indicated.

The lecturer incurred the wrath of the lawmakers following his claim that MPs are “ignorant” and lacked knowledge on the Ebola vaccine trial which was scheduled to take place in Ghana.

He apologised to Parliament for describing them as “ignorant” when he appeared before them on July 14.
