The contempt case filed in an Accra High Court against the Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice-Marshal Frank Hanson, has been postponed until November 23, 2021.
The judge decided to allow the petitioner to serve two more respondents in the case.
After the court hearing, the applicant’s lawyer, Emmanuel Bright Atokoh, said that the senior military commander disobeyed a previous order, prompting their contempt proceedings.
He further claimed that Air Vice-Marshall Frank Hanson deployed troops and began construction on property where the high court had issued an injunction.
According to the applicant’s attorneys, this resulted in several residents being assaulted. The hearing was attended by Air Vice-Marshal Frank Hanson and his attorneys.
The Chief of Air Staff is embroiled in a land dispute with Adolf Tetteh, who claims he disobeyed an order prohibiting him from entering the property in question.
Adolf Tetteh, the alleged landowner, has also accused the senior military commander of destroying his property and threatening his workers with troops.
