J. B. Danquah’s Case Adjourned to 2018
An Accra District Court on Thursday, 14 December adjourned to 2018, the case on the murder of Abuakwa North MP J. B. Danquah-Adu.
The court will call the case again on January 4, next year.
Pathologist Dr Lawrence Adusei, who conducted an autopsy on the late MP’s body, failed to show up in court to present his report, prompting the judge to adjourn the case for the fourth time.
Dr Adusei was supposed to present the report to the police to aid the prosecution process but has failed to do so, even though he was instructed by the court at the last hearing to make the post mortem report available before Thursday, 14 December.
Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bosso have been charged with abetment of crime, to wit, murder. Asiedu is additionally charged with murder.
They were discharged from a High Court when the Attorney-General filed for discontinuation of the earlier trial but were later re-arrested and fresh charges preferred against them. The MP was killed at his Shiashie residence in Accra on 9 February 2016.
