Her lawyers, led by Nkrabea Effah Darteh, and another Counsel who was standing in for Freddie Blay, pleaded for bail for her and assured that she will make herself available for trial.
Effah Darteh told the court that the case against his client has been unnecessarily blown out of proportion with a high level of media trial going on.
The case has been adjourned to June 18, 2018.
Hajia Fati created a scene at the party's headquarters after slapping a journalist with Accra based radio station Adom FM, when Sammy Crabbe went to pick his nomination forms.
She said, she slapped Ama Sekyiwaa because the reporter did not introduce herself adding that she had not sought her permission before taking pictures.
She added: "She was snapping [taking pictures of] me, I don’t know her, she didn’t approach me, she didn’t tell me anything. I only saw a flash on my face twice, the third time, I slapped her because I didn't know who she was."
She also said the reporter looked more like an onion seller.
She added: "I don't know anyone but I remember slapping a lady. She didn't approach me and all I saw was that she was taking a picture of me. I thought it was one of Sammy Crabbe's people who wanted to take a picture of me so I slapped her.
However, she has appealed to the media for forgiveness.
