Mr. Vortia also pleaded with the court to begin considering an acquittal and discharge of the accused persons.
However, the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Denis Terkpetey Esq. in response, accused the lawyers of violating a gentleman’s agreement on the matter.
According to him, the parties were expected to collaborate in the arrest of another suspect in the matter but the lawyers have since failed to cooperate with the State in that regard.
Chief Inspector Terkpetey told the court that the State would resort to every means in arresting the said suspect.
The court presided over His Honour, Emmanuel Essandoh, subsequently adjourned the case to February 15, 2022.
