The Progressive People’s Party’s (PPP) petition book, which is taking signatures to compel President John Mahama not to pardon the Montie 3 contemnors, has been stolen by unknown thugs.

The book, with about 1,700 signatures yet to be handed over to the President, is believed to have been stolen at the party headquarters after three young men had walked into the building in a pretence of signing the petition.

The party has since reported the incident to the Nima Police station for investigations.

The party’s counter petition follows a petition spearheaded by a pro-governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) group called Research and Advocacy Platform (RAPS) that is seeking to compel the President to pardon a presenter, Salifu Maase, popularly known as Mugabe, and two panellists, Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn of an Accra-based Montie FM, who have been convicted by the Supreme Court.

The group, RAPS, subsequently presented the petition to the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah. Lawyers for the three contemnors had already presented theirs to the presidency.

President John Dramani Mahama has since presented to the Council of State petitions he received in respect of the jailed Montie three contemnors.

The Chief of Staff, who made the presentation, said the president is expecting advice from the Council of State on the matter.

The Montie three, Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase alias ‘Mugabe’ were sentenced to four months in prison by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.

The contempt proceedings came after the three threatened the Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.
