Prosecutor in DSP Tehoda’s case indisposed

A State Attorney on Monday told an Accra Circuit Court hearing the case of DSP Gifty Maweunyega Tehoda, the Senior Police Officer at the centre of the alleged swapping of cocaine that the prosecutor in the case was indisposed.

Mr Owusu Ameyaw, a State Attorney told the court that Mr Rexford Anthony Wiredu, the Chief State Attorney handling the case could not attend court because he was not well.

He told the court that the accused, had not been reporting regularly to the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) as part of the bail condition directed by the High Court.

Mr Ameyaw said the accused only reported once to the BNI after which she had never reported.

DSP Tehoda, however, refuted the claims by the prosecution and said she had been reporting to the BNI as directed by the Court.

Ms Audrey Kokuvi Tay, the trial judge, who was not happy with the continuous delay of the case, said she had still not been served with the ruling from the High Court, which granted the accused bail.

She said this was making it difficult for the court to proceed on the matter and subsequently adjourned the case to Monday, April 2.
