Lawyer for the Judicial Service is shocked at the reaction of the Ghana Journalist Association to his letter on behalf of the Judicial Service, which made him exclaimed “Jesus Christ!” while responding to the GJA statement.
In Joy News interview, Thaddeus Sory said he didn’t understand why the GJA is showing unnecessary concerns about his letter to the media adding that he only repeated what the media should have known all along before the issuance of his letter.
In the interview, he exclaimed “Jesus Christ ! I’m usually the first person to concede a point if it is clear. The GJA has not said one thing that has anything to do with this letter. The heading ‘Threats against the med’, where is the threat in here. You have read a paragraph that says if you say vengeful or spiteful things about the judiciary, it has consequences. Did I need to tell the GJA members who know basic journalism that this has consequences? I have only repeated what they should know,” he said.
He noted that the nature of the proceedings is what has caused the public outrage because he said nothing new.
“If there was anytime we should have this conversation, it is now. At the time I was issuing this statement upon instruction, these are not the things that agitated my mind that there is the likelihood of a decision coming out and all that”.
“But now, seeing how people are reacting to a statement that is basic and restating something we should all know, I now understand why it should be issued because the nature of the proceedings is what is provoking this,” he stressed.
