Recently- appointed Council of State member Sam Okudzeto has said the Montie 3: Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase (Mugabe) are "rascals."

He described the attempt by former president John Mahama to free the three contemnors as one of the “worst episodes and also misuse of that institution.

Speaking on Accra-based Joy FM, he said:

"For them [Council of State members] to have gone and said they should grant pardon to rascal boys, who were threatening the judiciary and even the Chief Justice, and all that the court did was to give them what I call 'a mild sentence, very mild'; four months is very mild, that was even what makes it more nonsensical."

Background
The trio were freed from the Nsawam Medium Security Prison on Friday, 26 August 2016 after Mr Mahama remitted the remainder of the four-month jail sentence imposed on them by the Supreme Court.

Salifu Maase, the host, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn were released from prison following a remission of their sentences by President John Mahama.

Some commentators saw the remission as a slap in the face of the Judiciary, while others said the President has only exercised his prerogative of mercy under Ariticle 72 of the Constitution.

Mr Gunn and Mr Nelson, who were panellists on a political talk show called Pampaso on Montie FM, hosted by Mugabe threatened to kill judges of the apex court while discussing issues concerning the register of voters ahead of the 7 December 2016 polls.
