The famous defamatory suit slapped against sports presenters Patrick Osei Agyemang (Songo), Kofi Asare Brako (Abatay) and Multimedia Group Limited has been adjourned again to November 29, following the defendants’ counsel’s refusal to file for defence after hearing was opened today.
According to the counsel for the defendants, Mr. Shadrack Ahen, his clients have apologised for defaming the Ghana FA Boss and FIFA Council member Kwesi Nyantakyi hence deciding not to file for defence.
He argued that the counsel for the plaintiff should read the apology along with the plaintiff and if they are dissatisfied, he will then file for defence for the full hearing of the case.
Counsel for the defendants (Songo, Abatay and Multimedia) pleaded with the court that the due process of issuing an apology to the Ghana FA Boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has been followed and that they expect the plaintiff’s counsel to acknowledge that.
Counsel for the plaintiff (Kwesi Nyantakyi), Mr. Felix Ahenkan prayed to the court that his chamber has not seen the said apology as being alluded by the counsel for the defendants insisting the hearing must start but the counsel for the defendants rebutted that the apology was rendered with the full consent of a senior member in the chamber of the counsel for the Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Nyantakyi’s counsel then prayed to the court to give him some time to look for the said apology to read and then report back to the court on a set date.
Both parties agreed that the next date of sitting should be November 29, 2016.
