Judgement Day for Phillip Assibit, Abuga Pele in the GYEEDA Trial Set for Next Year February 23

Judgement in the nearly four year old financial misappropriation trial, Popularly know as the “GYRED trial” has been set for the 23rd of February 2018. The Presiding judge at the Financial  and Tax Court 2, Justice  Afia  Serwaa Asare Botwe proposed the date after a four hour court sitting to ensure that State Attorneys completed their cross examination of the  Second Accused person, Abuga Pele.
Three State Attorneys led by Chief State Attorney, Yvonne  Kelson, subjected the Second Accused person to a host of questions  aim at getting the accused person to admit that there was no work done by Philip Assibit and his Goodwill International Ghana (GIG) Limited and that no due diligence was conducted  by the then NYEP Secretariat before payments where made.
The First  Accused Person,  Phillip  Assibit opened his defense after calling  four defense  witnesses. After his cross examination  was completed by State prosecutors, the second accused person called only one defense  witness after which he was led by his lawyer to give his examination in chief.
Today in court,  State Prosecutors brought their cross examination of the Second Accused to an end paving was for the court to give specific timelines within which it will bring the entire trial to an end. To that end,  the court ordered the lawyers  representing  both sides to file their addresses  by the 26th of January 2018. The parties would then return to  court nearly a month later on the 23rd of February for the Judgment of the court.
