KKD's case transferred to High Court, calls for dismissal



The Kaneshie District Court has committed KKD to trial in the high court in Accra.

His first hearing will be on Wednesday March 18, 2015.


The prosecution insists they have enough evidence to successfully prosecute the case per the content of the bill of indictment

The defence lawyer Anthony Forson in a rebuttal prayed the court to refuse to commit his client saying the prosecution did not hold any credible evidence to go ahead with the trial.

Forson cited the letter written by the victim to the AG as enough grounds for dismissal.


In her ruling Justice Adjoa Akyamaa Ofosu said her court has no power to determine evidence of a prima facie hence her decision to transfer it to the high court.
