The MP was fined after the case was dismissed over the failure of the lawyers of the MP to show up in court.
Sam George was expected to show up in court with his lawyers to continue with a case earlier filed, seeking to restrain the EC from hosting a supposed workshop on the new voters’ register at the Escape Hotel in Prampram.
His lawyers in making their case argued that the EC will be breaching the government’s ban on social gathering, should the exercise continue.
The case was expected to continue today, however, the lawyers of the MP failed to show up in court on time “because of other engagements in Accra,” Mr George said.
According to the MP, there was no need to continue with the case since the said date for the exercise [of the EC] had passed but unfortunately, his lawyers failed to show up in court to discontinue the case.
“The basis on which we went to court was no longer existent because the EC was no longer holding the said meeting.
