Sheriff Asem Darkey, the fisherman standing trial at an Accra Fast Track High Court for allegedly importing the 77 cocaine parcels using the MV Benjamin vessel has indicated that he had no witnesses to call.
His Counsel Isaac Aidoo yesterday told Justice Mustapha Habib Logoh that, they did not wish to call any evidence and consequently wished to close their case.
The judge then told both the prosecuting principal state attorney Mrs Yvonne Obuobisa and Mr Aidoo, he would adjourn the case to February 25, 2014 to enable the court to make record of proceedings ready.
It is expected that a date for filing of addresses might be filed on the adjourned date.
The accused, accompanied by his wife Ruby Afedo and some friends and sympathizers left after he was whisked into a vehicle by some Bureau of National Investigations officers.
