Listen to article

Accra, Nov. 17, GNA - Mr Justice J. C. Amonoo-Monney, Appeal Court Judge hearing the Ghana Rubber Estates Limited (GREL) divestiture case involving three persons, on Wednesday adjourned proceedings for one week.

This is to enable a Counsel in the case to obtain certain documents from the Divestiture Implementation Committee (DIC), to assist in the cross-examination of one of the accused persons.

The three persons on trial were Hanny Sherry Ayittey, Treasurer of the 31st December Women's Movement; Emmanuel Amuzu Agbodo, Former Executive Secretary of the DIC and Ralph Casely-Hayford, a Businessman. They have all denied their respective charges and the Court has granted each of them a self-recognisance bail.

Mr David Lamptey is counsel for Ayittey, while Mr John-Hanson Senoo and Rodney Heward-Mills are defending Agbodo and Casely-Hayford, respectively.

While cross-examining Agbodo at the Court's last sitting, Mr David Lamptey Counsel for Ayittey, informed it that he would need certain documents from the DIC to assist him.

The Court obliged and asked Mr Lamptey to do everything possible to obtain those documents by the next adjourned date.

At its sitting today, however, Mr Lamptey informed the Court that he had still not laid hands on the documents and that he needed time. Consequently, Mr Justice Amonoo-Monney adjourned proceedings to Tuesday, November 23.
