Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, NDC Chairman 

Attorney General, Alfred Asiamah Sampong on Friday, 8th May 2020 asked the Supreme Court to afford him more time to prepare a second witness for the trial of the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Elder Ofosu Ampofo.

Ofosu Ampofo, along with Anthony Kwaku Boahen, NDC’s deputy communications director are on trials after being charged with conspiracy to harm and attack government officials.

Mr Sampong said AG could not make all of its statements from its witnesses because the process happened during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak

Mr Tony Lithur, attorney for Ofosu-Ampofo, requested the Court, presided over by Judge Samuel C. Asiedu, a High Court Judge, who is serving as an additional Supreme Court judge, to provide a longer delay to make room for a pending application at the Supreme Court.

Mr Lithur had previously submitted an application to the Court of Appeals to postpone the appeal to request a hearing on the testimony of the prosecutor’s witness.

The Supreme Court rejected this statement after receiving witness testimony from Mr Benjamin Osei Ampofo Adjei, the first witness prosecutor and member of the Multimedia Group (Adom FM).

The two defendants did not plead guilty to these allegations.

Both are guaranteed to have a 100,000 GHS guarantee.

The court adjourned the trial until June 12.
