Opuni Trial: Court Adjourned Case To January 17 Following System Breakdown….

The trial in which Dr. Stephen Kwabena Opuni and two others are standing trial has been forced into adjournment following the breakdown of the court system.

The accused persons have pleaded not guilty to charges including causing financial loss to the state and have been granted bail.

In court on Monday, January 10, 2022, when the case was called for Dr. Opuni’s witness to continue with his testimony, the court said there was a system breakdown of the entire first floor of the High Court.

“There is a problem, and the whole system is down, and I don’t know when it might be on for us to work, so it has to be adjourned,” Justice Clemence Honyenuga, a Justice of the Supreme Court, noted.

He explained further that, “It is nobody’s fault, and we don’t know when it will be on, so having heard about the enormity of the problem, we have to come next Monday and let’s see how far things will go.”
