No Case Docket On Kennedy Agyapong
State Prosecutors say they have not yet received case docket on the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, being tried for terrorism and treason felony for allegedly inciting and making inflammatory statement on radio.
Chief State Attorney Merley Wood, who announced this to the Accra Fast Track High Court yesterday, further said that it had been difficult getting Mr. Agyapong to assist in police investigation into the matter.
She attributed it to the fact that the court in granting Agyapong bail on April 19, did not make it a condition for him to report to the police to assist in investigations.
Ms. Wood therefore, prayed the court for a two-week adjournment.
But lawyers for Mr. Agyapong, led by Nii Ayikoi Otto, said the prosecution’s argument that it had not received a docket on the case was not justified, especially when they had prepared a charge sheet with all the facts, asking, “so where did they get the facts from?”
Counsel contended that the charge sheet on which their clients was arraigned, was prepared and signed by a Principal State Attorney, Anthony Wiredu, who is a member of the prosecuting team; therefore, “they cannot tell the court that they have no case docket yet.”
After listening to them, the court presided over by Mr. Charles Quist, granted the prosecution’s request and adjourned the case to May 23.
