Major Mahama autopsy: Police not cooperating – Pathologist

The pathologist carrying out tests on the body of Major Maxwell Mahama, has blamed the police for the delay in issuing the autopsy report of the late military officer.

According to Dr. Adusei, he has been unable to finish his work because the police are not cooperating with him.

Dr. Adusei told the court today [Thursday], that since the body of the late military man was presented to him, his request of having the essential key police investigators in the case make themselves available for the pathology process to begin have not been met.

He further told the court that parts of the body of the deceased could not be traced.

His testimony follows a court order directing him to appear before it, to answer questions on why the pathology report is not ready as stated by the police.

The prosecutor, DSP George Amega, during the last hearing of the case, informed the judge that they have been chasing the report from the medical officer since investigations began without any success.

Twenty-five persons are currently facing prosecution for their role in the suspected murder of Major Adam Mahama at Denkyira Obuasi. The suspects have been charged with murder.

The magistrate, Ebenezer Kwaku Ansah, adjourned the case to the 23rd of November 2017, where the report is expected to be presented following assurances from the pathologist and the police.
