Explaining to the court, the prosecution lead by Chief Inspector Simon Apoirsornu, the AG has advised that Bulldog, who also doubles as the CEO of Bull Haus Entertainment be discharged to enable further investigation.
According to Chief Inspector Simon Apoirsornu, the advice was specifically addressed to the bnDirector General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Police Service. The advice further caution CID from filing the advice at the court.
The Chief Inspector further indicated that advice to the CID Director-General was covered under the Privileges Act, Section 100 of the Evidence Act.
But the Defense lawyer, Jerry Avenogbor, disagrees stressing that Section 100 of the evidence Act indicates that privilege information is between professionals and their clients like lawyers and doctors.
Bulldog’s lawyer averred that adjudication of justice in the country’s jurisprudence is ultimately between the court and the investigating body.
He told the court presided over by Worlanyo Kotoku that his client was incarcerated for a while but the judiciary saw the need to bail him because the police investigation led to nothing.

Mr. Avenogbor further accused the police of having plenty excuses while establishing that law is solely in the hands of the judge to discharge bulldog.
The trial magistrate, however, ordered that Richard Gyambibi, the Senior State Attorney who wrote the advice be summoned before the court to explain the aspects of the advice covered by privilege.
