Supreme Court has today, April 13th ordered the MP for Assin North, Mr. James Gyakye Quayson to desist from performing any parliamentary duties. The ruling came out after a majority 5-2 decision, by the Supreme Court Judges.

The Member of Parliament for Assin North had appealed against the High Court judgment but was invalidated for failing to file written submissions within the stated time.
