Member of Parliament for the Madina Constituency, Francis-Xavier Sosu has been spotted in the chamber of Parliament.

The legislator, who has been on parliamentary business outside Ghana, was seen readying to join his colleagues, ahead of the presentation of the 2022 budget estimates by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

Sosu’s arrival in Parliament comes at a time when the MP has failed to show up in court, following Police charges, accusing him of his involvement in a violent demonstration in his constituency.

But according to his lawyer, the MP is not escaping the trial; adding that Sosu would duly submit himself to the relevant processes, once he’s done with his assignments outside Ghana. The resumption of his trial, has been scheduled for November 29, 2021.
