An Accra court has summoned actress Nana Ama McBrown to appear and testify on United Showbiz for his panel who threatened President Akufo-Addo on UTV in the event of Artiste Manager Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson alias Bulldog.
McBrown had already sent her witness statements and was set to appear in court on March 25, 2021.
However, on Wednesday, the prosecution team led by Chief Inspector Simon Apporsunu informed the court that Mrs Mensah, the host of the UTV show where the accused made the pronouncements, will be the first prosecution witness on Thursday, March 25, 2021.
He asked the court to summon Nana Ama McBrown to testify, claiming that her participation and testimony would be extremely helpful in resolving the legal problems posed by the program.
According to the new evidence raised by the prosecution, the complainants in the case are residents and frequent viewers of Nana Ama Agyemang Mcbrown’s UTV show “United Showbiz,” which airs every Saturday between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m.
The accused was one of the panelists who appeared on the show on January 9, according to the prosecution.
The question of Menzgold was brought up during the program, according to Chief Inspector Apiorsornu, and Hanson quickly replied, saying, “The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, will not complete his four-year term if he fails to pay Menzgold customers.”
According to the prosecutor, on January 11, this year, the police seized the aforementioned video recording on UTV’s Facebook page, which drew various responses from viewers who saw and heard the accused make certain “unguided” remarks.
The National Intelligence Bureau turned Hanson over to the Police on January 12 for investigation, according to the prosecution.
The police demanded the initial video recording from UTV during the investigation, according to the prosecutor, and it was played to the accused, who confessed to making those remarks.
An attorney for the defendant
The prosecution is misleading the court, according to the defense lawyer Jerry Avernoegbo, because the police invited the first prosecution witness and demanded a statement from her, so the prosecutor cannot argue she gave his witness statement.
Mrs Evelyn Asamoah, the presiding judge, released a witness summons and requested that Nana Ama McBrown appear in court on Friday, March 26, 2021.
