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.
