A three million Ghana cedis (GH¢3,000,000.00) defamation suit filed by Vokackom Limited, developers of the Ghana Post GPS App, has been thrown away by the court.
In the three million defamation suit which was file in 2018, the company holds that the National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi, has made certain defamatory statements against them at a press Conference organized by the Caucus For Democratic Governance-Ghana (CDG-GH) in 2018.
In the press conference under reference, Sammy Gyamfi was alleged to have talked extensively about the National Digital Address System, during which the said defamatory statements were made.
After three years of litigation, the High Court has finally pronounced judgment on the case today.
After carefully considering the facts of the case and the evidence adduced during the trial, the court dismissed the action of the Plaintiff (Vokacom Limited).
A cost of GHS8,000 was also awarded by the Court against the Plaintiff, Vokacom Company Limited.
Announcing his victory, Sammy Gyamfi expressed his profound appreciation to his lawyer, Edudzi Tamakloe Esq. for his pro-bono legal services and for standing by him every step of the way.
He also expressed his gratitude to the Court for upholding the truth.
According to him, “this matter will be revisited sometime in the soon to come future. Until then, aluta continua, victoria ascerta!”
