The Asokore Mampong district court presided over by Her Ladyship Portia Molly Sally has granted Kwame Fordjour aka Dr UN bail and ordered a medical examination of his mental state.
According to the trial judge in a report by OtechFM, the mental fitness of an accused person was a prerequisite to a fair trial and that it was important for Dr UN to have the mental capacity to understand and appreciate the court proceedings.
The court has, however, granted bail to the organizer of one of the country’s most controversial award schemes at the amount of GHc 15, 000 with two sureties to be justified.
Kwame Owusu Fordjuor aka ‘Dr UN,’ was arrested on Friday, 16 October 2020 at the premises of Kumasi-based radio station, Hello FM by the Police after an interview.
According to the Lawyer for Kwame Fordjour, Kwame Adofo, all charges levelled against his client will be contested. He stressed the burden is on the prosecution to prove with evidence until that his client remains innocent and called on the media to put a stop to all the allegations and media trials.
The presiding judge, Her Worship Portia Molly Sally ordered a psychiatric examination of Dr UN.
He is facing a trial for defrauding by false pretences from four different complainants.
