New Date Fixed For Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale Trial

Ghanaian dancehall artists Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy are due for court soon.

The  Adjabeng Magistrate Court, presided over by His Worship, Mr Isaac Addo, has fixed October 9, 2019, to commence the trial in the case in which Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy are being held for offensive conduct.

This was after the court, together with lawyers and prosecution, ended the Case Management Conference (CMC).

The purpose of the CMC is to identify the essential issues in the litigation and to avoid unnecessary, burdensome or duplicative discovery and other pre-trial procedures in the course of preparing for the trial of those issues.

In court on Monday, the two accused persons were represented by their respective lawyers: Jerry Avenorgbor for Shatta Wale and Selali Woanyo for Stonebwoy. Superintendent Emelia Asante represented the prosecution.

The prosecution is expected to call the first of its five witnesses it had indicated it would call, on October 9.

After the October 9 sitting, the accused persons would also return to court on October 14. All witness statements of the prosecution have been duly filed.

The prosecution earlier indicated they have filed and served on the defendants, all their witness statements.
