Actress and hostess of United Television (UTV) showbiz programme Nana Ama agyemang Mcbrown is expected to appear in court today.
This was after an Accra Circuit Court, yesterday issued a witness summon to compel to be in the courtroom to testify in the “Bulldog” trial
Chief Inspector Simon Apiorsornu, prayed the Court presided over by Mrs Evelyn Asamoah for the summons, after Mcbrown failed to appear in the Court to testify in the “Bulldog” trial.
The Court, after conducting Case Management Conference (CMC), billed Mcbrown as the first prosecution witness in the trial of Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, aka, Bulldog.
Bulldog is accused of threatening President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in a video telecast on air.
Chief Inspector Apiorsornu, told the Court, Mcbrown had earlier on agreed to come and testify but later informed the Police that she was no more coming to testify.
He, therefore, prayed the Court to issue a witness summon for the UTV hostess.
Jerry Avernorgbor, counsel of Hanson, told the Court that prosecution was trying to mislead the Court because the prosecution did not know the kind of investigations that had been conducted.
According to the defence counsel, the Police demanded a statement from Mcbrown, which she gave, hence the statement could not be described as a witness statement.
After the arguments, the Court issued a witness summons on Mcbrown and directed that she (Mcbrown) appeared on Friday March 26.
Hanson, an Artiste Manager, is alleged to have said on the programme that, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would not finish his four year term if he failed to pay customers of an alleged ponzo scheme by Menzgold.
Hanson had his plea retaken and facts of the case re-read to him with prosecution amending the charge sheet and the facts.
Hanson had denied the charge of “Offensive conduct to breaches of the peace.”
Hanson is on GHC 70,000 bail.
