- A Court has dismissed Wisa's application for 'no case'
- The musician has been ordered to open defense for his full trial
An Accra Circuit Court has thrown out hiplife artiste, Eugene Ashie, aka Wisa Greid’s submission of ‘no case’.
According to a Graphic.com.gh report, Wisa failed to convince the court to dismiss a case in which he is standing trial for allegedly displaying his manhood in public.
The court presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, on Monday dismissed the case and ordered him to open his defense for a full trial to begin.
The young musician was hauled before an Accra Circuit Court after he openly displayed his manhood while performing in a live concert.
Wisa on December 24, 2015 while performing at ‘December 2 Remember’ concert defied all cautions and decorum and pulled his manhood to stroke a female dancer from behind during a his performance.
His actions sparked huge outrage within the Ghanaian entertainment industry as he was widely condemned by all.
The musician who was in court pleaded not guilty to a charge of gross indecent exposure and was admitted to GH¢8,000 bail with a surety to be justified.
The prosecution on August, 2017 brought its case to a close after two years of legal tussle.
The lawyers of the musician who were expected to file the defense, rather filed an application for the court to dismiss the case.
In the application for no case, Wisa’s lawyer, Mr Jerry Avenogbor, argued that the prosecution failed to present any substantial witnesses or evidence to prove its case.
The lawyer in his argument said the prosecution relied on a social media video which could not be authenticated.
He also said the two prosecution witnesses testified that they did not see Wisa removing his manhood.
However, the only witness who admitted that he saw Wisa removing his manhood on stage also failed to appear before the court to testify.
Counsel, therefore, argued that justice would not be served if the case was allowed to continue.
