An Accra Central Magistrates’ Court has refused the application of the prosecution to order Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, aka Bulldog, an Artist Manager to make available password to his phones for further investigation.
The court asked prosecution to provide a reasonable ground why the court should make such an order to access the private phone of the accused person.
Bulldog pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit crime and murder.
The counsels for the accused person led by King Garry Marfo raised objection to the application filed by the prosecution, describing it as “witch hunting”.
He said what the prosecution was doing could also amount to “fishing expedition”.
The accused is being held for the murder of Emmanuel Fennac Okyere, the manager of Emmanuel Botwe popularly known as Kwaw Kese.
The Human Rights Court has granted bail to the accused person in the sum of GH₵20,000.
Bulldog was first arraigned on May 19. The Court presided over by Mrs Mavis Kwainoe has adjourned the case to June 30.
