The trial case of the National Chairman of the Nation Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo over an alleged leaked audio recording has been adjourned to Tuesday, January 12, 2021.
The case was adjourned because, a Court of Appeal judge sitting with additional responsibility as a High Court judge, Justice Samuel Asiedu is unwell.
A two-hour audio recording is purported to be a recording asking communication officers of the NDC to take the Chair of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Jean Mensa, ‘to the cleaners’ while giving them the go-ahead to also abuse the Chairman of the National Peace Council.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo and Kwaku Boahen, a deputy communications officer of the NDC have been charged with the conspiracy to commit harm to Jean Mensa and the Chairman of the National Peace Council.
Both of them have however pleaded not guilty to all charges and have been granted bail.
In court on Monday, January 11, lawyers of the accused persons were expected to cross-examine Detective Chief Inspector Bernard Berko, the investigator in the matter, who is the prosecution’s third witness in the case, the matter has however been adjourned.
