A High Court in Accra has adjourned to June 4, a case involving the Ghana AIDS Commission and former HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah.

The Commission is seeking an order for the release of the medical records of the former HIV/AIDS ambassador after she revealed she was not HIV positive late last year.

The High Court, presided over by Justice Mustapha Logo, adjourned the case because notice had not been served on Joyce Mensah early enough.

The 27-year-old mother of two had been an ambassador for the Ghana Aids Commission for years but revealed in December 2014 that she had never been infected with the virus, despite parading herself as a carrier for several years.

However, the Ghana AIDS Commission had rejected this and issued a statement insisting that medical records from 2007 showed that Joyce was HIV positive.

The Commission subsequently dragged Dzidzor Mensah to court to have the matter addressed.
