Lawyer Adu Tutu Junior, a private legal practitioner, has explained that the leaked tape of Asiedu Nketiah claiming that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had no evidence before going to the Supreme Court to challenge the presidential election in 2020 may not be admissible in court.
The lawyer stated that the court would not accept this as evidence because it violates Asiedu Nketiah’s right to privacy if his voice was captured.
Apart from the fact that voice experts would be called in to examine the audio, he indicated that his right to privacy had been violated and that whoever leaked the tape could be sued.
”That is the position of the law. And so if someone wants to know if the NDC could be dragged to court over this matter, you can drag them to court for wasting its time dragging its name in the mud. But if the evidence you will rely on is the leaked tape, that would be difficult.”
He also mentioned that if the court gathers evidence that you purposefully wasted its time and abused the processes, it may sanction you.
Aside from that, the evidence on which you will rely is inadmissible. That would be difficult to accomplish. That is the rule. However, we commented on this and agreed that the NDC was wasting our time with the case.
”It has become clear that the NDC wasted our time filing the presidential election petition. They lacked the evidence to prove their case, yet they attacked and called the court biased.
