His lawyers on September 18 urged the court to halt proceedings explaining they had filed an application at the Supreme Court challenging Justice Awuni’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Although Justice Wuni had argued that nothing barred him from proceeding with the case, he adjourned proceedings to September 25 to hear further legal arguments from Mr Agyapong’s team.

The court on September 25 was informed of a petition Mr Agyapong had sent to the Chief Justice alleging possible bias in the part of the judge.

The case proceeded nonetheless as his charge was read and a reported by myjoyonline.com stated that a  guilty plea was entered for him by his lawyers.

But giving more details why their client was unavailable, Lead Counsel for Mr Agyapong, Kwame Gyan said they had attached a note from his doctor to be handed to the court.

“Our client, the honourable Kennedy Agyapong suffered from complications from the post-COVID-19 condition that he suffered last month.

“We arranged for him to seek treatment from the same doctor who treated him of Covid-19,” he said. Justice Amos Wuni adjourned proceedings to Thursday, October 1 order that the doctor appears to explain the note.
