The Attorney-General's advice in the case involving two persons accused of the murder of a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, J. B. Danquah-Adu, is still not ready.
Therefore, an Accra District court has no other choice than to once again adjourn the matter without carrying out any task on it.
The court has been expecting the legal opinion from the A-G on the matter since October 2017, to enable it to decide whether the suspects, Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bosso, should be committed to trial at the High Court.
The two have been charged with murder and abetment of the murder of the late MP.
The late J.B Danquah-Adu
J.B Danquah-Adu was stabbed to death on the night of Tuesday, February 9, 2016, at his Shiashie residence in Accra.
The prime suspect, Daniel Asiedu was arrested two days after the incident. The accomplice was picked several weeks later.
On Wednesday, May 9, 2018 JoyNews’ Joseph Ackah Blay reports, Accra District Court Magistrate, Arit Nsemoh informed the two accused persons she was yet to receive the A-Gs opinion leaving her with no choice than to adjourn the case.
The state prosecutor handling the case, DSP George Amegah, was also not present in court when the case was called on Wednesday, the reporter added.
