The High Court has granted former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah, an expedited hearing for the case involving the seizure of her money and freezing of her bank accounts. Originally scheduled for October 18, the hearing will now take place on October 12.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) had requested permission from the court to continue the seizure of money found at Cecilia Dapaah’s residence and freeze her bank accounts. Cecilia Dapaah, in turn, filed a petition to expedite the case, citing undue hardships due to delays.
Dapaah’s lawyers argued that the delay in the case was causing undue hardships. The request for an expedited hearing would not prejudice the OSP’s confirmation application.
The OSP opposed the application, claiming it aimed to prevent them from responding to Dapaah’s affidavit in opposition. They argued that their process required personal service.
Dapaah’s lawyers countered, asserting her right to waive personal service. They also contended that the OSP’s confirmation application filed on September 5 was a repeat of an earlier application dismissed on August 31.
The court granted the application with a slight modification, rescheduling the confirmation application hearing to October 12. Justice Eric Twum deemed further delays unfair to Dapaah and her husband. The process had already been delayed due to various factors. This decision aimed to ensure a fair and swift trial.
