George Loh, Vice Chairman of Parliament’s Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee has said that anyone who is unhappy with the work of the Privileges Committee of the House can go to the Supreme Court.

His comments came in the wake of accusations by Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight Newspaper, Ken Kuranchie that the Committee’s invitation to persons deemed to have been in contempt of it may well be seen as an act of intimidation of the media.

Speaking to Citi News, George Loh who is the Member of Parliament (MP) for North Dayi said the Supreme Court’s interpretation might help in the matter.

“Anybody including Ken Kuranchie who feels strongly about this, the law courts are there, the Supreme Court is there for interpretation.

 “The standard document for all Parliaments in the world talks about privileges…so it is not that what we are doing is of our own opinions or ideas.”

“Parliament is an institution which is globally constituted on principles so you can go and check,” he argued, adding that “Ghana’s Parliament is not doing anything different from what other Parliaments do and of course, we are masters of our own rules”.

Ken Kuranchie was invited as a witness before the Committee when he published a story of former Hitz FM’s presenter, Blakk Rasta who alleged that about 80% of Members of Parliament smoke Marijuana.
