The National Chairman of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo court case at the Commercial Court 1 Division of the Accra High Court, presided over by Justice Kwame Adibu Asiedu has once again been adjourned.

The case has been adjourned to June 7 to hear the applications filed by both parties.

In today’s hearing, Lawyer Tony Lithur informed the court that he has filed an application for the court to strike out the second and third charges which relate to assault against his client Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

He said the application was filed on Friday, May 24.

National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has been arraigned alongside a deputy National Communication Director, Kweku Boahen on charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault against a public officer.

The two men are currently on bail in the sum of GHc 100,000 each.

Flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama and other bigwigs in the NDC such as Nana Ato Dadzie, General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah and Joyce Bawa Mogtari were in court during the first sitting at the Accra High Court last month.

The two national officers of the NDC pleaded not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.

Meanwhile, a Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Kpemka says the prosecution will be able to produce evidence to back the charges levelled against the accused persons.
