The two Kasoa teen boys who have been charged for the murder of a 10 -year-old Ishmael Mensah Abdullah have made their first appearance at the High Court to begin a trial.
The two were on August 16, last year committed by the Kaneshie District Court to stand murder trial.
In court on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, the two accused persons were present without lawyers.
Dorcas Sellie, a State Attorney told the Criminal Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei Marfo that, the accused were represented by counsel during the committal stage and so no action could be taken without lawyers.
“This is our first appearance and since it is a trial on indictment, we cannot take any action in the absence of their lawyers.
We will pray the court for an adjournment to enable us to communicate the next court date to their counsel,” the state attorney prayed to the court.
Her Ladyship Justice Osei Marfo urged the accused persons to communicate to their lawyers the next adjourned date where the court would be conducting an “important exercise.” The case has been adjourned to February 2, 2022.
