In July 2021, Dr Opuni’s lawyers filed an application at the Supreme Court asking that it restrains Justice Honyenuga from hearing the matter.

He alleged that his right to be heard fairly had been breached by the Judge aside from a demonstration of bias. The allegations flowed from Justice Honyenuga’s ruling on a submission of no case application.

Dr Opuni’s lawyers contend the judge committed an error of law when he rejected some documents submitted as evidence. These are witness statements said to have been obtained by the state during investigations.
