The Supreme Court on Friday whittled down the witness statement of Rojo Mettle-Nunoo, third witness for former president John Mahama in the Election 2020 petition hearing.
Five out of the 23 paragraphs objected to by second respondent’s (President Nana Akufo-Addo) lawyer, Akoto Ampaw, were struck out because they had no basis in law.
They are portions of paragraph 4, and the entirety of paragraphs 5, 6, 7, and 18 of the witness statement.
Mettle-Nunoo, who as a result of ill-health will be testifying via Zoom, could not be cross-examined after taking his oath as a result of the marathon objections.
He is expected to be back in the witness box on Monday 8 February 2021 to be cross-examined by Justin Amenuvor, counsel for the Electoral Commission.
