The legal brouhaha between television host, Afia Schwarzenegger, and her ex-husband takes another twist. This is because the prosecution presented a new witness in the case. However, the court originally closed the case.
Moreover, an Accra Circuit Court closed the prosecution’s case. This is because they struggled to find their next witness to testify in the trial.
However, things took a different twist when the prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Maxwell Oppong, presented one Detective Sergeant Simon Amegatse to testify on behalf of the substantive investigator, Sergeant Owusu Boateng.
Owusu Boateng who handled the case, the court heard, has been admitted at the hospital and is said to be in critical health condition and cannot even talk.
New turn in Afia Schwarzenegger case
Detective Sergeant Simon Amegatse’s testimony was close to nothing. This is because he virtually tendered in a medical report and investigation caution statements and other statements taken from Abrokwa.
Also, he told the court that he knew Afia Schwarzenegger’s ex-husband to be the complainant.
However, he realised that he is now the accused person in the matter.
Chief Inspector Oppong then informed the court that the prosecution would like close their case at that point.
During cross-examination, the defence lawyer, Anthony Namo, pointed out to the police officer that the only thing written in the medical report was what Afia told the doctor.
But Chief Inspector Oppong intervened. He stated that the witness cannot answer that question as he was not the author of the medical report.
