Man In Police Custody For Allegedly Threatening A Justice Of The Supreme Court
64 year old retired quantity surveyor with the State Housing Corporation, Livingston Bosso, has been picked up by the police for allegedly threatening a Supreme Court judge.
Citinewsroom reports that the retiree was arrested by four plain-clothed men together with a police on Friday May 6,2022 without explanation.
According to a relative who spoke to Citi News, Mr Bosso was “arrested in a Rambo style and taken to the National Security’s blue gate facility without explanations.” The relative added that the retired surveyor had been arrested for sending a text message to an old-time friend who is a Supreme Court judge, cautioning him and the bench to be circumspect with judgements in order not to caused public disaffection.
Jerry John, Mr Bosso’s lawyer, told Citi News that his client was already facing trial and was on Monday “surreptitiously arraigned without informing the family or his lawyer. He was told to plead guilty to whatever charges were read to him with hope that the judge will immediately grant pardon and discharge him with an instruction to apologize to the Supreme Court judge.”
According to the lawyer, Mr Bosso informed him that one police prosecutor by name Inspector Asiedu Brobbey told him not to mention anything about the court to his family and that he will be released upon admitting to his “offense”.
Mr Bosso has been remanded into police custody and is to reappear in court on May 23, 2022.
“As it stands, we have not seen the charge sheet, we do not know what Mr Bosso has been charged with and why he is being remanded.” Jerry John said.
The name of the said judge, clearly stays off the scene.
