Docket on murder of 2 cops forwarded to A-G for advice

The docket on Eric Duah and Mike Anim, who have been detained over the alleged murder of two policemen at Kasoa, in the Central Region was yesterday forwarded to the Attorney-General (A-G) for advice.

The prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvester Asare, told the Kaneshie District Court in Accra and asked for extension of time to enable the A-G study and submit the Bill of Indictment (BI) to court.

 Mohammed Awal and Michael Dzamesi of the Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) at Kasoa were performing official duties when the unfortunate incident occurred.

The accused are currently in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).

At proceedings on November 13, 2019, Mr George Eshun, counsel for accused expressed disappointment at media description of his client as “mad”.

Mr Eshun said: “I never said my client was mad, but that is what Daily Guide reported. It is not the right thing to do, and I am not happy about this.

“I know the media know what is right, but they intentionally sensationalise their report to attract attention.”

The court cautioned journalists against reporting unprofessionally, saying it was important for journalists to be circumspect in their reportage.

The case has been adjourned to December 16, 2019.
