File your submissions in seven days - Appeals court orders state lawyers
Responding to the court, senior state attorney, Richard Gyambin said the delay in filing their submissions was because the state attorney assigned to the case has been out of the country for a while.
Justice Barbara Ackah-Yensu was unhappy about the fact that they had not yet filed its submissions to the court and indicated that further delay after this new deadline will not be tolerated whatsoever. The filing of submission should have been done over a month ago; on Monday May 16, 2016.
