A team of lawyers defending Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has filed an application praying the Accra High Court to strike out the alleged assault charge against their client.
The team, led by Mr Tony Lithur, told the Court presided over by Justice Samuel K. Asiedu prayed the Court to make a determination on the application before the trial proceeds.
Dr Abdul Basit, Counsel for Mr Kwaku Boahen, Deputy Communications Director of the party, also prayed the Court to order the Attorney General/Prosecution to make available the case’s diary of action.
Mrs Yvonne Attakora Obuobisa, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) opposed the applications by the two sides, saying that prosecution had completed its investigation on where Mr Boahen was on the day the incident took place and the investigative report had been filed at the Court’s Registry.
Justice Asiedu adjourned the case to June 7.
Meanwhile, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo had pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer, whilst Mr Boahen pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to cause harm and are on GH¢100,000.00 bail each with one surety.
