    ‘Fake’ Takoradi Pregnant Woman To Open Defence

    Josephine Panyin Mensah, the 29-year-old woman at the centre of the controversial pregnancy and kidnapping claims in Takoradi, is expected for the first time to narrate her side of the story to the court from April 7, 2022.

    This follows an order by the Takoradi Circuit Court ‘A’ for the accused to open her defence after eight prosecution witnesses have testified in the case.

    Prior to the court’s order, counsel for the accused, Fiifi Buckman, in his submission of no case, argued that the prosecution has not been able to establish a prima facie case against his client for her to open her defence.

    The court, however, thought otherwise and indicated that the prosecution has been able to establish that the accused was not kidnapped neither was she pregnant.

    According to the court, presided over by His Honour Michael Ampadu, the accused was charged with publication of false news and deceit of public office.

    It indicated that the prosecution has been able to furnish the court with all the requisite documents to support the two counts.
