The Ashaiman District Court on Tuesday, 15 March 2020, adjourned the case between the State and #FixTheCountry convener Oliver Barker-Vormawor to Tuesday, 29 March 2022 following the prosecution’s inability to show up for the hearing.

Lead Counsel for the convener, Justice Srem Sai, therefore, prayed the court to discharge his client.

According to Mr Sai, the state has shown a lack of interest in the case by the failure of the prosecution to show up.

Chief Inspector George Doe, however, prayed the court to give the prosecution an additional hour to show up.

The prosecution still did not show up for the hearing.

Presiding judge Eleanor Barnes refused to discharge the convener. 

She indicated that it was the first time the prosecution had failed to show up in court.

The case has been adjourned to Tuesday, 29 March 2022.
