AG Swerves Bulldog
The Attorney-General once again, on Thursday, failed to make an appearance in the trial of the case involving Lawrence Nana Asiama Hanson, aka Bulldog, over the alleged murder of Fennec Okyere.
The court last month ordered that Richard Gyambibi, the Senior State Attorney who wrote the advice on the case docket be summoned before the court to explain certain “coded” aspects of the advice.
The AG had advised that Bulldog, who also doubles as the CEO of Bull Haus Entertainment be discharged to enable further investigation in the three-year-old case.
Although the court presided over by Worlanyo Kotoku has summoned Mr. Gyembibi neither he nor the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Simon Apoirsornu was in court.
When asked about the where about of the prosecution, Jerry Avenogbor, lawyer for Bulldog said it is unfortunate the court gives orders and the AG does not adhere to.
He said at the next adjourned date, the court may have to discharge Bulldog if the prosecution does not appear in court.
Jerry urged the court to adjourn proceedings until November 15, 2017 to enable the prosecution the time to come to court.
Bulldog, also a former manager of dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, is standing trial for his alleged involvement in the death of Fennec Okeyre.
Bulldog, 36, was picked up by the Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in 2014 at Kokomlemle, a suburb of Accra, as a prime suspect in Okyere’s death.
Bulldog’s plea has not been taken even though per the police charge sheet, he has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder until an Accra High Court subsequently bailed him.
