An Accra Circuit Court has adjourned the case in which Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known as NAM1 is standing trial to the 27th of next month. This is because, the sitting judge, Evelyn Asamoah has taken her leave. As all the parties were present in court waiting for the circuit court judge, the Clerk of the Court per instructions had to adjourn the cases for later dates.
The case of NAM 1 was not an exception, the accused was personally in court and there were heavy security presence. At the last court sitting on March 2, the court warned that it would be forced to strike out the case since it is unhappy about the delay on the part of the prosecution to file the necessary documents to commence the trial. On that day, the prosecutor in the case, ASPSylvester Asare, prayed the court, to give them more time be to able to file their witness statement and other documents.
It was the case of the prosecution that, the number of victims involved in the case is over 16, thousand and therefore more time would be required by the prosecution to do the necessary investigations. ASP Asare prayed the court for time and begged the court not to strike out the case.
