Daniel Asiedu, the young man accused of the murder of the former Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, Mr J.B. Danquah-Adu, has requested the Accra Central District Court to grant him permission to speak regularly with his pregnant girlfriend via phone.

He prayed the court on Wednesday to direct the police to hand over his mobile phone in their possession to his girlfriend.

“For the past eight months, I have not spoken to my girlfriend because she does not have a phone. I am, therefore, pleading for the police to give my phone that they seized to my girlfriend,’’ he said.

However, the presiding magistrate, Mr Stephen Owusu, said that his request could not be granted.

According to the magistrate, the said phone was part of the evidence being used by the prosecution.

He was, however, quick to add that his girlfriend or any family member could visit him periodically.

Asiedu further requested that he be provided with soap and toiletries on time.

Meanwhile, the prosecutor, Superintendent Francis Baah, informed the court that the docket on the case had been forwarded to the Attorney-General’s (A-G’s) Department for advice.

This is the second time the docket had been forwarded to the A-G, following the initial directive by lawyers for the government for the prosecution to make some amendments.

Mr Baah indicated that the prosecution had complied with all the directions given by the A-G and subsequently forwarded the docket again.

The case was adjourned to December 28, 2016.
