This was contained in a letter and signed by Lawyer of Nii Armah Ashietey, Gary Marfo and addressed to Zanetor Rawlings to provide this information within 4 days which elapsed Monday March 28, 2016.

The Plaintiff has subsequently filed a Motion on Notice – Application for Leave to Issue Interrogatories under Order 22 r 1 of CI.47, and will move that motion on notice on 4th April for Zanetor Rawlings  to provide the said particulars.

The new development became necessary after lawyers of Nii Armah Ashietey probed the Statement of Defence by Zanetor Rawlings in which she denied the Plaintiffs averment that the she is not a registered voter.

This means that notwithstanding confirmation from  the Electoral Commission (EC), the 2nd Defendant’s filed court processes indicate that she is holding herself out as a registered voter, a situation that raises issues of fraud and perjury.

The current motion was filed by Nii Armah Ashietey under Order 11 Rule 12 (6) of the High Court Civil Procedure Rules CI 47.
