The Attorney General’s Department is set to file documents it will use for the trial of Alhaji Collins Dauda, a former Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing who doubles as NDC MP for Asutifi South in the Ahafo Region, and four others involved in the $200 million Saglemi Housing Project scandal.
Appearing before the court yesterday, Evelyn Keelson, a Chief State Attorney, told the court that the accused persons were initially put before a vacation court presided over by Justice Comfort Tasiame where their pleas were taken, facts of the case read and the accused persons granted bail with various terms and conditions.
The court presided over by Justice Elfreda Dankyi then told the prosecution they needed to file their witness statements and asked how long it will take them.
Mrs. Keelson told the court that the prosecution will need about six weeks to file their disclosures and witness statements.
The court subsequently adjourned the matter to December 22, 2021
