A five-member panel presided by Justice Victor Jones Dotse, has adjourned NDC Chairman Ofosu Ampofo’s alleged kidnapping and violence case indefinitely.
The Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is standing trial over the infamous leaked audio tape, where conversations about causing mayhem in the country was discussed.
The NDC Chairman together with his legal team were absent when the case was called on Tuesday. Only the Director of Public Prosecution, Yvonne Atakorah Obuobisa, was present when the case was called.
Following the turn of events, Justice Dotse adjourned the case indefinitely. “We are just informed that there are some incidents, the applicants have not been served with the documents hence their absence.
“As the applicants have not been served, the case has been adjourned sine die,” Justice Dotse said.
In the said leaked audio, Ofosu Ampofo is allegedly heard inciting party communicators to assault public officials and plotting to harm some other civilians – allegations he has vehemently denied.
The plan was to create a general state of insecurity in the country through kidnapping, verbal attacks on public as well as Chairperson of Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah.
Ofosu Ampofo, who described his trial as a political witch-hunt, minced no words by stating that he knows those behind his misfortunes.
