Gyakye Quayson’s motion for a stay of proceedings in his High Court trial has been denied by the Court of Appeal.
The MP filed the application at the Court of Appeal last week, after the High Court dismissed his case.
He had requested the High Court to delay proceedings so that the Court of Appeal could hear his appeal against the trial judge’s decision to hear his case on a daily basis, but the application was denied.
He then filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal, which has since been dismissed.
The MP is on trial in Accra’s High Court on forgery and perjury allegations.
The Accra High Court last dismissed an application filed by the Member of Parliament for Assin-North, James Gyakye Quayson which sought to put his perjury and forgery trial on hold until the Court of Appeal determines an application against the trial court.
The court presided over by Justice Mary Maame Ekue Yanzuh, ruled that the applicant failed to provide exceptional circumstance to warrant the grant of stay of proceedings.
“I am unable to agree with the submission that the appeal has a brighter chance of success because of errors of law.
“The fact that the applicant believes his appeal will succeed does not by itself warrant a special circumstance for a stay to be granted,” the presiding judge said last week.
