Hearing of the case of the Suame NDC youth organizer was adjourned by the Asokwa Circuit Court following the absence of his counsel.
Appearing before the court on Thursday (4 May) Razak Koampa Avoliya informed trial judge Frederick Obikyere that his lawyer Mr Evans Amankwah had been taken ill.
“My Lord he is at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital”, Razak told the judge in Twi.
This was after the court heard that the accused person has been served with all available disclosures for a case management conference. The court consequently adjourned the case to 18 May following the prosecutor’s request.
Razak Koampa Avoliya was arrested, charged and arraigned over a statement he made that border on possible reprisals to state-sponsored violence ahead of the 2024 polls.
The youth organizer has however pleaded not guilty to the charge of offensive conduct conducive to the breaches of peace. He is currently on ¢50,000 bail.
