Court unhappy over absence of lawyer in MP’s Killers trial


  29 Juillet      5        Justice (872),

   

Accra July 29, GNA- A High Court hearing the case of alleged killers of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, J.B Danquah Adu on Wednesday lamented over defense counsel’s absence in court.
The court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, noted that Mr. Augustine Obuor, counsel for the accused has been absenting himself from court thereby causing delay in the trial of Daniel Asiedu aka Sexy Dondon and Vincent Bossu.
The court said that no reasons have been given by defense counsel for his absence.
According to the trial judge if counsel failed to make an appearance in the matter at the next sitting, she would be compelled to write to the Legal Aid Scheme to provide the accused with new legal representation.
Earlier Asiedu raised his hand up praying the court to get them a new lawyer but the court asked them to wait till it hears from the their substantive legal counsel.
The Prosecution led by Ms. Hilda Craig, Senior State Attorney informed the court that it has been a while since she saw or heard from Mr. Obour and that she has other cases with him and that he has not been attending to the other cases as well.
She therefore prayed the court that she was going to send defense counsel a message by notifying him on the next adjourned date.
The matter has been adjourned to October 16, 2020.
Asiedu and Bossu are being held on the charge of conspiracy to rob.
Asiedu is additionally facing the charge of murder of the MP.
JB Danquah Adu was murdered in his residence at Shiashie in February 9, 2016.
It is the case of the prosecution that Asiedu and Bossu planned to go on a robbery spree but Bossu abandoned the plan to rob and proceeded home.
Asiedu however proceeded to Shiashie and where he managed to enter the legislator’s house, robbed and murdered him in cold blood by stabbing him in the neck and chest.
