The High Court has deferred its ruling on the bail application filed lawyers for ACP Benjamin Agordzo, one of the accused persons facing trial for allegedly trying to destabilize the state.
According to the judge, Justice Ekow Baiden, even though the ruling is ready, he will like to consider some of the verbal arguments made in court.
Lawyers for ACP Agordzo filed the bail the application at the high court in December 2019, arguing that their client is being unduly kept in lawful custody.
The case has been adjourned to January 21, 2020.
ACP Agordzo is innocent – Family
The family of ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzo had earlier said they are hopeful he will be acquitted and discharged soon because of his innocence.
According to them, the charges levelled against their relative lack merit.
ACP Agordzo had been denied bail for the second time when he appeared in court.
Meanwhile, in the most recent development on ACP Agordzo’s trial, the District Court dismissed his lawyers’ attempt to have him released using legal technicalities.
The lawyers, led by Martin Kpebu asked the court to allow their client to go home after state prosecutors had withdrawn the charge sheet on which he was being held.
Their application was objected to by the prosecutor, ASP Sylvester Asare who described the argument by the defense as not founded on law.
