Tehoda Files Address

DSP Gifty Mawunyegah Tehoda who has sued the Police Ghana Service for unlawful dismissal over her alleged complicity in the cocaine which turned into sodium bicarbonate in police custody, is set to file her address.

This was after Mrs. Tehoda and her lawyer appeared at the Human Rights Court presided over by Justice Kofi Essel Mensah to effect final corrections on their copy of the record of proceedings.

The trial judge was to give the date for judgment yesterday but due to the fact that the final corrections were yet to be done, had adjourned the case to July 30, 2015 to enable the plaintiff and state to effect final corrections.

The state attorney in the matter Cecil Adadevoh was absent due to the strike by all state attorneys in the country.

The state attorney at the last sitting told the court that they intended to present their last prosecution witness in respect of the trial.

Interestingly, he failed to do so and was compelled to close his case.

Mrs. Tehoda had filed a writ against the Ghana Police Service over her dismissal for her alleged role in the swapping of 120 kilogrames of cocaine with Sodium Bicarbonate.

She is also seeking a declaration that her prosecution by the State over the alleged swapping of cocaine was malicious and asked to be compensated for her dismissal.

Mrs. Tehoda wants a declaration that her detention in cells beyond 48 hours by the BNI was unlawful.
