The Attorney General’s office is preparing for committal proceedings against three people standing trial in the murder of social activist, Ibrahim Mohammed, in Ejura.
The committal proceedings will prepare the grounds for full trial of the accused persons at a higher court.
A duplicate docket has been forwarded to the A-G’s office by the Police prosecution team.
Issakar Ibrahim, also known as Anyars and Fuseini Alhassan, both known NPP Polling Station Executives and Iddi Mohammed, a brother of the late social activist, are accused of murdering Kaaka Macho.
Lead Prosecutor, Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi told the court that the prosecution is counting on the A-G to begin committal proceedings after acknowledging receipt of the duplicate court docket.
“We confirmed to the court that the docket has gone to the A-G’s office and then counsel from the other side, the accused persons, also confirmed it that he even followed up to the A-G’s office and they said the Police has given the docket to the A-G. Lawyers from the A-G’s office are preparing to come to court to do the committals. You know it’s not the Police who do the committals. It’s the A-G,” Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi told Joy News.
Counsel for the third accused person, Mohammed Iddi had earlier told the court his client had taken ill and had to seek medical care at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
Nonetheless, Setutsinam Anaglate is satisfied that his client was allowed to seek medical care.
