I'm not above the law - McDan reacts to contempt case

The Chief Executive Officer of the McDan Group of Companies, Dr Daniel McKorley, has reacted to a decision of an Accra High Court to sentence him for contempt.

The High Court (General Jurisdiction) presided over Justice Kweku Tawiah Ackaah-Boafo, a Justice of the Court of Appeal, sitting as an additional High Court judge imposed a fine of GH¢40,000 on him.
The court said GH¢15,000 out of that fine should be given to the applicant in the matter, who accused McDan of forcibly taking over his land under dispute.
Commenting on the matter, Dr. Daniel McKorley expressed that he has the utmost respect for the court and the judiciary as a whole.
He, however, noted that his busy schedule was the reason for his contempt adding that it was not a deliberate attempt on his part to evade the court.
“I have nothing against the court and its decision. In fact, I have the utmost respect for the judges in the country and confidence in our judiciary system.
“Although the court has taken a decision in the matter, I'm not above the law and I want to put on record that the contempt was in no way deliberate as I have been on a busy schedule and some of these things have not been properly brought to my attention," he said.
He said this development would help him better manage his time and it also shows that the courts are working so no matter the caliber of person, once you fall on the wrong side of the law, you would be punished.
