McBrown to testify in Bulldog’s trial on Friday
An Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Mrs. Evelyn Asamoah, has issued a witness summons on popular actress Nana Ama McBrown.
The versatile actress is expected to appear before court on Friday, March 26, 2021, to testify in the case in which Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, known as Bull Dog is standing trial for allegedly threatening President Akufo-Addo.
The artist manager is alleged to have said “The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will not finish his four-year term if he failed to pay customers of an alleged Ponzi scheme by Menzgold’ on UTV’s United showbiz.
The host of the show, Nana Ama Agyemang Mcbrown, is expected to mount the witness box as a prosecution witness.
Hanson earlier denied the charge of “offensive conduct to breaches of the peace.”
The Court admitted Hanson to a former bail of GH¢ 70,000.
The prosecution led by Chief Inspector Simon Apiorsornu has retaken the plea of Hanson and re-read the facts of the case after amending the charge sheet and the facts.
The new facts as presented by the prosecution were that the complainants in the case are citizens and regular viewers of the UTV program dubbed “United Showbiz,” hosted by Nana Ama Agyemang Mcbrown, which is live every Saturday between the hours of 9 pm and 11 pm.
Chief Inspector Apiorsornu said during the January 9th edition of the program, the issue of Menzgold was raised and Hanson quickly responded that “The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will not finish his four-year tenure if he failed to pay Menzgold customers.”
The Prosecution said on January 11, the Police intercepted the said video recording on the Facebook page of UTV, which attracted many comments from viewers who watched and heard the accused making those “unguided” comments.
The prosecution said on January 12, Hanson was handed over to the Police by the National Intelligence Bureau for investigations.
He said in the course of the investigations, the Police requested the original video recording from UTV and it was played to the accused and he admitted having made those comments.
The Prosecution said the original video, which was in Twi and English language was forwarded to the Ghana Institute of Languages for transcription and the same was transcribed into the English language.
