Sosu criminal summons case adjourned to Feb 7, Magistrate on leave

The Kaneshie District has adjourned the case in which Member of Parliament (MP) for Madina Lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu is facing criminal charges to February 7, 2022.

This was because the magistrate handling the case is on leave.

At the last court sitting in November 29, the court presided over by His Worship Oheneba Kuffour issued a bench warrant for the arrest of the MP saying there is so much “deception” in the system.

But on December 1, last year, the court rescinded the warrant after Sosu and the leadership of Parliament met with the magistrate.

The legislator who has been a subject matter of criminal summons is being sought to answer to three charges to wit; causing unlawful damage, obstruction of traffic and causing danger to roads users.

EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah reports that the Madina was present in court.

Bench warrant rescinded

The Kaneshie District Court rescinded the Bench Warrant issued on Monday, November 29, 2021 for the arrest of Madina MP on December 1.

This follows the attendance of Hon. Francis-Xavier Sosu to the Court on December 1, 2021.

The Madina MP was accompanied by the Minority Leader, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, Former Deputy Attorney General, Hon. Dominic Ayine, Former Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, Former Deputy Interior Minister and Ranking Member for Defence and Interior Committee, Hon James Agalga, Former Tourism Minister, Hon. Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare. Other Members of Parliament that accompanied him were Hon. Mahama Ayariga and Hon. Gizella Tetteh-Agbotui.
