Chairman of the Appointments Committee, Joseph Osei Owusu

Parliament’s Privileges Committee has called off a scheduled hearing in a case involving Assin Central legislator, Kennedy Agyapong.

Joseph Osei Owusu, the Chairman of the Committee, last week informed members of the Committee through a zoom meeting that the hearing will come off this morning.

However, Joy News gather that the “Privileges Committee meeting scheduled for today has been cancelled.”

No further details regarding the cancellation were made known

The House rises on Friday, August 6, 2021.

The outspoken MP is said to have threatened the life of a journalist, Erastus Asare Donkor, following the journalist’s claims on the coverage of the military brutality that occurred at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

Mr. Agyapong came under fire two weeks ago for threats he allegedly made against Erastus Asare Donkor, a journalist with Luv FM in Kumasi.

He called for the reporter to be beaten following the latter’s testimony before the committee that probed the disturbances at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

The mother company of Luv FM, Multimedia Group, has already petitioned the police over the issue.

The Ghana Journalists Association has also called out Mr Agyapong recalling similar comments made by the MP before the killing of Ahmed Suale, an investigator on Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger-Eye PI team.
