An Accra Central District Court on Tuesday ordered the Pathologist Department at 37 Military Hospital to furnish the Director General of CID with the autopsy report of Major Maxwell Mahama.
The presiding judge, Ebenezer Kwaku Ansah ordered the full report to be provided, or Doctor Lawrence Adusei comes to court on the next adjourn date to explain why the full report has not been released.
The court’s decision follows a request by the prosecutor DSP George Amega asking the court to order for the release of the post-mortem report on the late soldier, claiming it is an important information that will facilitate the investigative work by Police.
The case has been adjourned to October 26.
The deceased, Major Mahama, an officer of the 5th Infantry Battalion, at Burma Camp in Accra but on a national assignment at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region, was said to have been on his daily jogging routine on Monday [May 29, 2017], when some angry youth of the town attacked him, allegedly on suspicion that he was an armed robber.
The Police subsequently arrested over fifty suspects who had fled the town to other regions in the country.
Further investigations reduced the number of suspects to 19.
