The case involving the 13 members of the Delta Force has been adjourned to August 8, 2017 due to the absence of the police prosecutor in charge of the case.
The officer is on leave and none of his colleagues (policemen) was assigned to present investigations gathered to the court hence the adjournment.
The information about the prosecutor’s leave was relayed to the court presided over by Judge Mary Nsenkyire.
The lawyer for the Delta Force members Mathew Appiah said they were not informed about this development.
Ultimate FM’s Eno Safo reported that the lawyer described the development as ‘normal’ hoping that the case will be heard on the adjourned date.
All the 13 members of the group were present in court today but none of the members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was spotted.
The 13 members are standing trial for assaulting the Ashanti Regional security coordinator George Adjei.
The group some months ago escaped court custody with the aid of their eight colleagues.
They were all fined and cautioned to exhibit good behaviour and later granted bail with sureties.
