Prosecutors absent in Oliver Barker-Vormawor case at Ashaiman District Court, case adjourned to March 29

 

Report by: Cwesi Daniels

The Ashaiman District Court has expressed concern over the inability of the prosecution to show up in court in the case in which Oliver Barker-Vormawor has been held for treason felony.

The accused person whose bail application would be ruled on Wednesday was present in court.

When the case was called, lawyers of the accused were present but there was no representation from the prosecution.

The absence of the prosecutor led to a plea by the defence for the accused to be discharged on basis of want of prosecution.
