Lawyer for the NPP and Hajia Fati, Captain (Rtd) Nkrabeah Effah Darteh, told Citi FM that he is optimistic that they will reach a settlement agreement with the complainant.

“According to the alternative dispute regime, petty misdemeanors like petty assault among others can be resolved through discussions and compromises here and there," he said.

"So I do not have a problem if this matter is resolved peacefully but I have no doubt that should the case come for trial my client will be acquitted and discharged because if you take cursory glance of the fact, you realize my friend had no intention of committing the offence so I do not have a problem” said Mr. Darteh.

Hajia Fati later in an interview explained that she thought the reporter was Sammy Crabbe’s agent who had been sent to take pictures for ulterior motives adding that she thought the journalist was an”onion seller”.

“The woman standing there did not look like a reporter. I thought it was one of Sammy Crabbe’s women who wanted to take pictures of me. The lady did not look like a reporter. She resembled an onion seller. She did not look like a reporter at all,” she said.
