A social media commentator, Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor has been dragged to court for allegedly defaming Commercial High Court judge, Justice Eric Kyei Baffour.
The law practitioner warrant orders the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the National Security and the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), to arrest the social media commentator.
He’s to be presented in Court to answer why he should not be committed to jail for his derogatory comments about Justice Eric Kyei Baffour.
He is also seeking a “perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from publishing any further defamatory material about the plaintiff.”
He also wants the social media commentator to retract and apologise for the several publication against his personality.
Justice Eric Kyei Baffour in issuing the arrest warrant said the warrant will hold until Kelvin Taylor is arrested and presented to his Court or until he longer exists on planet earth.
Kevin Taylor in a recent episode of his social media video reportage called “With All Due Respect” and dubbed the “The Men in Red, Tainted Judiciary”, Kelvin Taylor, picked on the Court of Appeal Judge, Justice Eric Kyei Baffour, and made several allegations against him.
“Today I will tell you about the men in red, yes the men in red and how some of them have been compromised,” he said in his introduction in the said video.
Kelvin Taylor further indicated in his video that among the recent High Court Justices who were promoted to the Court of Appeal, Justice Eric Kyei Baffour, has been penned down by members of the ruling government to be used as the conduit to prosecute former government officials. He called on the new Chief Justice, Justice Anin Yeboah to investigate the Court of Appeal Judge failing which he will release audio tapes in his custody bordering on meetings the Court of Appeal Judge has had with high ranking officials of the Akufo-Addo-led administration.
