AG Fish More Evidence Against Chairman Ampofo Over Teak Tape Case

State prosecutors in the trial case against National Chairman of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, are in deep search of evidence to possibly nail him as they pulled up more documents in court Monday morning May 6.

As part of the legal gymnastics to hang the NDC Chairman, the state through Attorney General rushed to the High Court Registry on Monday morning to file fresh documents few minutes to the hearing of the case.

Some of the suppose fresh evidence of crime documents filed comprised of a police caution statement, charge statement, witness statement, forensic report, CD’s and transcript of the alleged audio.

The defence team led by Dr Dominic Ayine were not seized with the opportunity to interrogate the said prima facie documents, as they were not served with certified copies.

The late filing of the evidential documents by the state prosecution team, compelled the trial judge, Mr Justice Samuel Aseidu, to adjourn the case to May 27, by which time the Defence team would have had opportunity to study the documents and responded same.

Meanwhile, the Defence team have also filed the case of alibi in the interest of the second defendant, Kweku Boahene.

According to the Defence legal counsel, Kweku was not present at the meeting where the alleged take recording was made.

National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, is standing trial alongside a Deputy National Communication Director, Kweku Boahen on charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault against a public officer.

But denied the state claims and pleaded not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.

The trial Judge however, admitted them to bail in the sum of GHc 100,000 each.

The state prosecution led by a Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Kpemka, earlier on assured that the prosecution would produce evidence to back the charges levelled against the accused persons.

Nevertheless, the NDC described the prosecution as politically motivated and vowed to use all available legal means to free their party national officers.
