Judge orders the seizure of phones from journalists at Obengfo’s trial

- Phones of journalists present at the trial of the CEO of the Obengfo Hospital, Dominic Obeng-Andoh were siezed before proceedings began

- The phone of the suspect was also seized

- No explanation was given for the act by the magistrate Her Worship Efua Sackey

The trial of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Obengfo Hospital, Dominic Obeng-Andoh took an unexpected turn as the magistrate present, Her Worship Efua Sackey, ordered the seizure of phones of journalists present.

Also seized was the phone of the suspect in the case, Obeng-Andoh. The development, which caught many by surprise, stimulated comments from those present.

This was because, the practice is not often a regular feature in court proceedings, and rarely happens in such situations.

Though the reason for the action was not given, the magistrate insisted that her instruction had to be carried out before she hears the case.

In that respect, the Court Warrant Officer (CWO) present took possession of the phones of the journalists present.

This included those of the court correspondents of Accra-based FM’s Ama Brako Ampofo, Ghanaian Times reporter Malik Suleiman, Publisher newspaper Jeffrey De-Graft Johnson, and a reporter of EIB Network, Wilberforce Asare.

Dominic Obeng-Andoh is currently standing trail with respect to the death of the Former Deputy CEO of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP) Stacy Darko.

She allegedly lost her life after undergoing a surgical procedure at the Obengfo Hospital.
