Business Mogul, Ibrahim Mahama has won a defamation case against Ernest Owusu Bempah of Ghana Gas and the Despite Group.
The court presided by Justice Georgina Mensah Datsa (High Court, Accra) granted all the reliefs except the cost of ¢2 million which the judge awarded ¢300,000.

They have also been directed to publish a retraction and apology in the Daily Graphic and on the same platform, those defamatory words were used against the plaintiff.
They are also to remove the said defamatory material about the plaintiffs from all archives.
The judge also warned communicators who go on media platforms to malign innocent people to desist from such acts because that ll not be tolerated.
"Ernest Owusu Bempah by publishing those words directed at the person of Ibrahim Mahama, he has defamed him. I shall proceed to grant judgment in favour of the Plaintiff, Ibrahim Mahama. As we move towards next year's election, we need to be guided," Justice Georgina Datsa said.
The CEO of Engineers and Planners, Ibrahim Mahama, last year sued the Communications Director of the Ghana National Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah, along with the Despite Group of Companies – owners of private TV station UTV last year for defamation.
Mr Ibrahim Mahama was represented in court throughout the proceedings by his Aide Rafik Mahama.
The judge cited his absence as a reason for not awarding the full amount of ¢2 million against the defendants but she concluded by saying she understands the busy schedule of the plaintiff hence his absence in court.
The legal team of Mr Ibrahim Mahama was led by Lawyer Reindorf Twumasi Ankrah and supported by Gloria Amoah and Makafui Dzimabi.
