A-G Delays Italian Murder Trial


THE Accra Central Magistrate is still waiting for the advice of the Attorney-General’s (A-G’s) Department on Serradura Luigi, the Italian accused of murdering his 74-year-old partner, Bellunatu Egle, at their Amasaman residence.

The prosecutor in the case, ASP Cletus Abadamloora, has told the court presided over by Mrs Dora Gloria Araba Eshun that the prosecution has still not received any response from the A-G’s Department.

The trial judge consequently had the case adjourned to March 3, 2015.

Suspect Luigi, 62, who has been charged with murder, has denied any wrongdoing.

ASP Abadamloora, who presented the facts, said the suspect and the deceased Egle were both pensioners and Italians resident in Ghana.

He said the deceased, who fell in love with the suspect, sold her house in Italy to put up a three-bedroom house at Kuntunse which they moved into in 2009.

Furthermore, he stated that Bellunatu bought a pick-up vehicle which the couple used for their activities.

He said on October 29, 2013 one Dzakpasu, a hired cleaner, went to the house to clean but when he got there the door was locked so he knocked several times but there was no response.

He then tried reaching the deceased through her mobile phone but she did not answer the call. After sometime Dzakpasu found the key to the main door, opened it and found the victim lying at the entrance in a pool of blood.

The prosecutor explained that the cleaner subsequently called the suspect and they went to lodge a complaint with the police at Amasaman. He added that Luigi alleged that robbers had attacked them and taken an Acer laptop, cash amounts of GH¢4000 and €1000, as well as two mobile phones.

In addition, he stated that the victim was found lying in a supine position—meaning, the body was carefully placed at the entrance of the main door.

He explained that the weapon used in killing Bellunatu was yet to be found.
