SAEED K. GYAN, JA:

By his Written Submission filed on 15/01/2018 Learned Counsel for the “Defendants/Appellants” had presented this Court with a clearly incongruous “appeal”.

On the very first page of Learned Counsel’s aforesaid Written submission he delivers himself thus:

“The Defendants appeal will encompass the two rulings Her Ladyship Justice Barbara Ward Acquah (Mrs) J, delivered on

1. 25th January 2016 (captured on pages 150-151 on Records of Proceedings volume one) and

2. 15th July 2016 (captured on page 181-183 on Records of Proceedings volume Two).

The Defendants aggrieved by these two rulings have filed this appeal. The grounds of Appeal are found on pages 184-185 on Record of Proceedings. There are seven grounds of Appeal” (Emphasis provided)

Learned counsel then proceeded to “consider” his grounds of appeal “in the reverse order starting with ground f” to the effect that “the Judgment of 21st April 2015 is unassailably sound and the Ruling of 25th January 2016 is void”.
