The Supreme Court has adjourned a suit brought by embattled judge Justice Paul Derry praying it to declare null and void a petition before the president to have him investigated on allegations of corruption.

The adjournment followed the inability of the court bailiff to serve Tiger PI with the suit brought against by the High Court Judge.

According to lawyer for Justice Paul Derry, Nii Kpakpo Addo, they had provided all the requisite address of Tiger PI for service but all efforts have proved furtile so far.

Justice Dery prayed the highest court of the land to declare that Anas’ petition to the president for his removal as a High Court judge is null and void.

According to the suit he is relying on Article 146 (8) of the Constitution which states: “All proceedings under this article shall be held in camera, and the Justice or Chairman against whom the petition is made is entitled to be heard in his defence by himself or by a lawyer or other expert of his choice.”

His lawyers are expected to argue that Anas, after petitioning the president to remove him from the bench because of the acts complained about on the video, violated the constitutional provisions by proceeding to make the evidence public.
