“I’m not above the law – McDan says

Daniel McKorley, Chief Executive Officer of the McDan Group of Companies, has praised the judge who convicted and sentenced him for contempt, saying the incident has increased his respect for Ghana’s judiciary.

The fact that the court did not respect his social standing and was bold enough to deal with him in accordance with the law, according to the multi-millionaire, demonstrates that no one is above the law.

McDan told journalists after the sentence that he had learned a lot from his conviction by the court and that he would put measures in place to avoid getting in trouble with the law in the future.

“I have no beef with the court or its decision. In fact, I have the utmost respect for our country’s judges and trust in our judicial system. Although the court has made a decision in the matter, I am not above the law, and I want it on record that the contempt was not intentional because I have been on a busy schedule, and some of these things were not properly brought to my attention.” This development will allow me to better manage my time, and it demonstrates that our courts are functioning properly, so no matter who you are if you get in trouble with the law, you will be punished.

“This case has made me learn a lot and now my trust and respect for the judges and courts in Ghana have increased. “I really respect the courts and want to congratulate the judge who found me contemptuous,” starrfm says. McDan is quoted as saying by gh.

The business magnate revealed that he had paid the fine imposed by the court as punishment for the contempt.
“The Court’s fine has since been paid, and I want to advise every citizen in this country to respect the court because no one is above the law court, which is one of our land’s highest authorities,” he revealed.

The Accra High Court’s General Jurisdiction found McDan guilty after he deliberately disobeyed its orders regarding a disputed parcel of land in East Legon.

As punishment for his offense, Kweku Tawiah Ackaah-Boafo, a Justice of the Court of Appeal sitting as an additional High Court Judge, imposed a fine of GHc40,000 McDan.

The court ordered that GHc15,000 be deducted from the fine and given to the applicant in the case, Al-Hassan Iddisah.
