January 22 Is D-Day for Wisa
The Accra Domestic Violence and Gender Based Court has set January 22 to deliver its ruling on a submission of no case filed lawyers for hiplife artiste Eugene Ashe.
The ruling by the court, presided over by Mrs. Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku is expected to determine whether or not the accused, aka Wisa Greid, would be required to open his defense in the hearing.
Lawyer Jerry Avenogbor had filed for no case on August 30, 2017 arguing that his client has no case to answer in respect of the matter before the court.
Wisa’s lawyer believes the prosecution, led by Inspector Judith B. Asante have no case against the “Ekiki Me” hit singer.
Soo far, Inspector Edward Odame of the Police Criminal Investigation Department has been was cross-examined on a witness statement he had tendered.
This was because the witness, one Jerry Narh, who had given the statement to the police, was not available to speak to the witness statement.
The defence lawyer was skeptical over the authenticity of the document, indicating that the statement was not signed and if it was signed, the court could not be sure that the said Narh signed it.
Lawyer Avenogbor also disputed the fact that Wisa and the said Narh went to the police to give the statement to the police as claimed by Inspector Dame.
The Wisa is standing trial for allegedly showing his manhood during a live performance on December 24, 2015 during the ‘December 2 Remember’ event at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
A video of the artiste stripping and rubbing what was believed to be his manhood against his female dancer on stage was put on social media, compelling his management to apologise for what it described as the artiste’s “rash and irresponsible behaviour”.
