Embattled New Patriotic Party (NPP) sympathizer, Hajia Fati, on Monday, 21 May 2018, appeared before the Adjabeng Magistrate Court to answer to charges of assault and damage of property levelled against her.

Hajia Fati, however, pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and causing damage despite admitting to hitting the complainant in her caution statement.

She is standing trial for allegedly slapping Adom FM’s Ohemaa Sekyiwaa who was covering events at the NPP’s headquarters on Friday, 4 May 2018.

However, Lawyers for the embattled New Patriotic Party(NPP) loyalist, have appealed for an out-of-court settlement in the pending lawsuit slapped against their client.

In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Lawyer for the accused person, Hajia Fati, and the party, Captain(Rtd) Nkrabea Effah-Dartey said he believes the matter will be settled out of court.

“According to the Alternative Dispute Resolution(ADR) regime, petty petty misdemeanours like petty assault and causing a public nuisance, these are issues that can be resolved through discussions and compromises here and there. So I don’t have a problem if this matter is resolved peacefully. But that is not to say that I have any iota of doubt that should the case come for trial, my client will be acquitted and discharged, because if you look at the facts, a cursory glance at the facts, reveals that my client has no intention whatsoever of committing the offense, so I don’t have a problem,” he said.
