Major Mahama trial: Prosecution closes case; hearing adjourned to May 30

The prosecution in the late Major Maxwell Mahama trial has concluded its evidence against 14 defendants. 

Due to Covid 19, the case at the Criminal Court 3 of the Accra High Court had been adjourned for a year. 

After being called by the prosecution, 14 witnesses were cross-examined by the accused's lawyers. 

Attorneys for the accused sought for more time to file their no case submissions. 

The case was adjourned to May 30 by the presiding judge, Justice Mariama Owusu, a Supreme Court Judge who also serves as a high court judge. 

On May 29, 2017, the villagers of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region lynched him after mistaking him for an armed robber. 

The mob had rejected his repeated claims that he was a Ghanaian Armed Forces soldier.
