Justice Adran Fisher has advised the All People Congress (APC) Interim Chairman, Alfred Peter Conteh that he should take the allegation against him very seriously.
Alfred Peter Conteh was taken to the High Court by the APC for contempt of court after he allegedly flouted the judgement of Justice Fisher of the High Court.
In court on Friday, Justice Fisher reminded Alfred Conteh that, should be found guilty of the offense, he may spend long time in prison or pay heavy fine, and further admonished him to be in court on the next adjourned date.
Justice Adrian Fisher issued further directives to Lawyer Jesse Jengo for the plaintiff that, he should file his submission to counsels representing the All Peoples Congress Party on or before October 12, 2022, and also further issued directions to Lawyer Africanus Sesay to reply to lawyer Jango’s submission on Thursday, October 13, 2022.
The judge ordered both counsels that, after filing their respective submissions they should send their submissions to him through email.
Meanwhile, Lawyer Jesse Jengo, representing Alfred Peter Conteh, said lawyers representing the APC party had served him with their application on the issues of contempt.
He, however, noted that, notwithstanding, on October 12, 2022, he would file his written submission and affidavit in opposition to the application served on him by the defense counsels.
APC lead Counsel, Africanus Sesay, in reply, said if lawyer Jengo serves them with his submissions on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, they will reply to his submission on October 13, 2022.
Justice Fisher adjourned the matter to October 17, 2022, for argument.
