Pressure is mounting on former Member of Parliament for Gomoa Central, Rachel Appoh to withdraw a defamation suit filed at the High Court against maverick showbiz personality Afia Schwarzenegger.
This follows the defamation suit filed by lawyers of the MP against Afia as a result of some unprintable allegations made against the former.
In the view of the lawyers of the MP, Ms. Appoh had by the action sought to give the controversial showbiz personality the opportunity to prove her allegations before court.
Rachel, who is also a former Gender Minister in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, had dragged Afia before court demanding a whopping GHC 5 million in damages.
However, close associates of the MP, family, constituents as well as politicians across the political divide disagree with her choice of action due to one reason only – they argue that Afia Schwar does not merit the attention of the MP.
According to them, Ms. Appoh towers above the pettiness of Afia and as such ought not to waste her time, energy and resources on her.
Meanwhile, the Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is set to invite Appiah Stadium to assist in investigating a charge of invasion of privacy lodged against him by the former legislator.
Appiah stadium had reportedly called Ms Appoh on phone using former president John Dramani Mahama’s name, recorded the conversation and allegedly sold it to Afia Schwar for GHC1,000.
Also on the invitation list of the BNI and the police CID is one Debora Edith Chibhamu aka Queen Dee, the alleged former sugar mummy of Elikem Kumordzie, the man at the centre of this controversy.
Edith, currently based in Dubai had among other things also accused the former MP of running an abortion clinic.
