Dr Kwabena Duffour gets 3 knockouts

Dr. Kwabena Duffour, Founder of uniBank, desire to bar the Receiver of his bank, Nii Amanoo Dodoo, from testifying in a case against him and other officials, has been short-lived.

The Supreme Court, in a majority decision of 3-2, ruled that Mr. Dodoo could testify in the trial.

The panel, made up of Justices Paul Baffoe-Bonnie, Prof. Henrietta Mensah Bonsu, and Samuel Asiedu formed the majority, while Justices Gabriel Pwamang and Amadu Tanko dissented.

The judgment was delivered on Wednesday May, 2023.

The decision of the Apex Court also affirmed a ruling of the Court of Appeal, as well as that of the trial High Court, that Mr. Dodoo should testify as first Prosecution Witness (PW1) in the case, a position the lawyers for Dr. Duffour had strongly opposed.
