Takoradi Fake Pregnancy Woman’s Case Adjourned To Nov. 11
A Takoradi Circuit Court has adjourned for another four weeks, the case of a 27-year-old woman who allegedly faked her kidnapping in Takoradi.
Josephine Panyin Simons, who also allegedly pretended to be pregnant for over nine months, is expected to reappear in court on November 11, 2021.
She was charged with deceiving public officers and publication of false news to put fear in the public.
The accused person has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Thursday’s adjournment resulted from the unavailability of the prosecution to provide some documents needed to start the case management conference.
Lead counsel for the accused, lawyer Fiifi Buckman told the media after the hearing that; “the substantive prosecutor couldn’t attend court so we have to send all the documents back to him to look through because he is doing the prosecution.”
The case was presided over by Michael Cudjoe Ampadu.
Josephine Simons Mensah appeared in court looking healthy and smartly dressed in a pink dress with sneakers to match.
