An Accra High court has, earlier today ordered that Honorable member of parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa be served a writ of summons by substituted means after bailiffs couldn’t serve him in person after several tries.
Honourable Okudzeto is said to be evading service of the writ of summons. He is one of three defendants in a case brought against them by the Honourable Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey regarding the Africa Watch Defamation.
The other defendants are General Media Strategies Inc. and Steve Mallory.
The bailiffs have been ordered to publish the writ in the daily graphic and post same on the notice board of the court.
By the court’s order of substitution, Hon. Okudzeto will be deemed to have been served with the processes whether he likes it or not.
