NDC Chairman’s case at the Supreme Court adjourned indefinitely

At a Court hearing yesterday, the Supreme Court has adjourned a case between the 

National Chairman of the Opposition Party, National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

The National Chairman’s move to exclude a witness statement in his ongoing trial has been frustrated by the lack of service of hearing notice on him.

The Supreme Court noted that the bailiff could not serve Ofosu Ampofo with the hearing notice and consequently adjourned the case indefinitely.

The Court presided over Justice Jones Dotse said appropriate steps should be taken to unravel the cause of the failure.

Background

The NDC National Chairman is being prosecuted following a leaked tape in which he is allegedly heard inciting party faithful and communicators to cause an upset within the system and cause mayhem following a leaked tape.

The first prosecution witness, Benjamin Osei Ampofo Adjei, a Journalist at Adom Fm, however casied a stir in High Court when he denied authoring a statement he appended his signature to.

The Adom Fm Journalist told the trial court he had been made to sign witness statements, therefore had no knowledge of its content.

The Court however accepted the statement though it was earlier denied.

The NDC Chairman’s legal team, proceeded to the Supreme Court to seek to exclude the statement from the State’s evidence.
