Defence Counsel for Dr Dominic Obeng-Andoh aka Dr Obengfo, proprietor of Obengfo Hospital at Weija took a swipe at the police/state, when the matter was called at the District Court.

Mr Jonathan Dzaisu, who held brief for Dr Maurice Ankrah, noted that, the police kept saying that the case docket of his client was being worked on and based on that the matter should be adjourned.

According to Mr Dzaisu, the state was swift and effective in arresting but when it came to advise on cases, the Police say the case dockets are being worked on.

Mr Dzaisu’s made the assertion after the Detective, Chief Inspector Simon Apiorsornu, had told the District Court presided over by Ms Efua A. Sackey that the Office of the Attorney General was almost ready to deliver its advice.

Detective Chief Inspector Apiorsornu was optimistic that the said advice would be ready by the next court sitting.

The matter was therefore adjourned to November 8. The month long adjournment was due to the fact that Obengfo and his accomplice Edward K. Amponsah, a hospital Cleaner, are on bail.

Amponsah is being held for impersonation while Dr Obengfo is being held on a charge of murder.
