Background

The Kaneshie District Court in Accra has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Member of Parliament (MP) for Madina Francis-Xavier Sosu.

The legislator who has been a subject matter of criminal charges was absent in court for the third consecutive time.

In court on Monday, November 29, when the case was called his lawyer Victor Kwadjoga Adawudu said, his client is on the Constitutional and Legal Committee of Parliament and they are sitting on the Anti-Gay bill.

According to counsel, Sosu is a ranking member of that Committee and with that exercise coming up this morning, means he is on Parliamentary duty.

Prosecution led by Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvester Asare argued that the conduct of the MP is clear that he does not want to appear before the court.

Relying on Sections 167 of Act 30, ASP Asare prayed the court to issue a bench warrant for the arrest of the lawmaker.

The court presided over by His Worship Oheneba Kuffour while granting the request for the bench warrant said there has been too much “deception” in the system.

Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah reports that one Rahman, was in court to represent lawyer Sosu, but the court said, in criminal matters, accused persons are to be present in court.

The case has been adjourned to January 12, 2022.
