The Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSSAG), has indicated that the presidential pardon for the Montie FM trio who were charged for contempt and jailed by the Supreme Court will not affect them in anyway.

According to President of JUSSAG, Alex Nartey, “I have said that, this remission for Mugabe and co will not affect us in a way. We are still growing as a nation so everything that happens is an opportunity for us to learn and gain experience from.”

“It is an issue that has happened as a national issue and we will look at it objectively as a national issue that we have to deal with.”

President John Mahama in consultation with the Council of State and in exercise of his constitutional powers under Article 72 of the Constitution, remitted the remaining prison sentence imposed on the Montie three Salifu Maase (alias Mugabe), Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn.

The trio were initially supposed to serve a four month jail term after they were sentenced by the Supreme Court on July 27, 2016.

A petition book was subsequently opened by pro-government group Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) to collect signatures of Ghanaians to implore the president to exercise his prerogative of mercy powers to free the three contemnors.

Those who signed the petition included the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hanna Tetteh, Minister of Children, Gender and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur, the Minister of Education, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang and her deputy, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
