Accra, Oct. 12, GNA - The two Judges and a Court Registrar who were accused of conspiring to steal 115.18 million cedis, have for the third time failed to appear before an Accra High Court. The money was part of interest that accrued from money paid to the Denu High Court by the Great Lakes Company.
At about 1200 hours on Wednesday, both the Prosecution and the accused persons had not appeared to take a date for an adjournment. When the case was called on July 15 and 27, this year, it was adjourned because the investigator in the case had not recovered from his ill health.
The accused persons are Justice Edward Mensah Boateng, a High Court Judge now on interdiction, Jacob Dickson Owusu, a Former Senior High Court Registrar in-charge of the Denu Court at the time of the incident and Justice Michael Kwasi Woanyah, a retired High Court Judge, whose last station was Denu.
The Prosecution had earlier told the Court, presided over by Mrs. Justice Avil Anin-Yeboah that the investigator in the case was ill and could not, therefore, send the accused persons from Denu to Court. As a result, there were no formal proceedings on the case. The facts of the case and charges preferred against the accused persons were therefore, not read.
