Parliament has charged the Daily Graphic reporter accused of inaccurately reporting on a parliamentary procedure of contempt.
Mark-Anthony Vinorkor ran a story on Parliament’s proceeding towards the passage of CI 94 that was deemed to be a lie.
An enraged house revoked his press pass after the story ran, and called on him and the Daily Graphic to apologise. The reporter has failed to do so, despite his employers at Graphic issuing a mea culpa.
In the house today (Friday), the decision was made to charge him with contempt of Parliament, and thus be summoned before the house to explain himself ala Blakk Rasta.
Mark-Anthony’s story said the passed CI was withdrawn and an amended one brought before the house which contained some language spelling out punishments for offending electoral officers. Parliament deemed the story wrong and asked for an apology, but did not get one.
