The High Court has dismissed an application to halt the criminal trial of the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo had filed an application to stay proceedings before the court, following an appeal of the judge’s decision to dismiss two out of the three charges against him.

But the judge, Justice Samuel Asiedu in his decision stated that the concerns raised by the lawyers of Mr. Ofosu Ampofo lacked merit and will continue hearing the case, while the appeal is heard.

Mr Ofosu Ampofo has been charged with one count of conspiracy to cause harm and two counts of assault against a public officer, while Kwaku Boahen is facing one count of conspiracy to cause harm.

He was said to have incited some of his party’s supporters towards violent acts in apparent response to the violence during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

He was heard on a leaked recording allegedly sanctioning verbal attacks on some public officers like the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson and the National Peace Council Chairperson.
