Commercial High Court presided over by Justice Samuel Asiedu, has dismissed an application filed by lawyer of the embattled National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, seeking to dismiss some charges preferred against him by the State.

Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Kwaku Boahen, Deputy National Communications Officer of the NDC have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime to wit kidnapping. Additionally, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo has been charged with conspiracy to commit a crime to wit threat of harm.

It was the contention of Mr. Ofosu Ampofo’s lawyers that the second charge preferred against their client was frivolous and should therefore be dropped from charge sheet.

Briefing Journalists after the court sitting which was held in the chamber of the Judge, defence lawyer, Tony Lithur, said that the presiding judge disagreed with the position of the defence team on their application and therefore dismissed same.

He added that the court has set down the case for trial which will commence from the 8th of July 2019. – Wilberforce Asare
