Beg us to reconsider defamation suit; Ibrahim Mahama's lawyer tells Wuntum(NPP)

Charles Zwennes, Lawyer for Ibrahim Mahama is asking Ashanti Region Chairman of the NPP Bernard Antwi Boasiako to apologise for defamatory comments made against the President's brother.

Mr Mahama filed a defamation suit against the NPP kingpin for some wild allegations made, but the case was adjourned on Thursday because the judge was indisposed.

Shortly after the adjournment, Charles Zwennes told Joy News a simple apology could be a starting point to end what could potentially be a long drawn battle.

"There is a good old saying that the word sorry does a lot to mend the broken heart and [in] the wisdom of our leaders within our society whom we have a great amount of respect for, when you say sorry it makes you a bigger man than when you decide not to say sorry," he said. 

Atta Adu Poku, Lawyer for Antwi Boasiako said they are open to a negotiated settlement but are ready for litigation as well.

The case has been adjourned to 14 January 2015.
