Witness statement and video of how Lawrence Nana Asyamah Hanson, also known as Bulldog, who allegedly threatened President Nana Akufo-Addo, was approved on Wednesday as the Chief of Evidence for Nana Ama McBrown.
The video was provided by prosecutors through United Showbiz host when she installed a witness box to testify against Bulldog.
Miss McBrown was questioned by Bulldog’s attorney, Jerry Avenorgbo after the video in which the alleged violation of the law took place was shown in a public hearing.
Artiste Director, Hanson, is facing court for allegedly saying on United Showbiz that “President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will not end his four-year term if he fails to nudge clients to an alleged bronze scheme by Menzgold.”
He has denied the charge of aggressive peace-breaking behavior.
The court, presided over by Mrs. Evelyn Asamoah, recognized Hanson on a prior bail of 00 70,000.
Meanwhile, the accused was informed of the disclosures and all the documents that the prosecution intends to rely on.
This was after holding a conference to manage the case with the defendants and the prosecution, and agreeing on timelines in which the case will be conducted.
The facts presented by the prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Abiusorno, are that the complainants in the case are citizens and regular viewers of the UTV program “United Showbiz”, hosted by Nana Ama Ajemang McBrown, which airs every Saturday between 9 pm and midnight.
The prosecution said on January 9 this year that the program had been broadcast on UTV as usual and the accused was one of the committee members who appeared on the program.
Chief Inspector Apiorsornu said during the program, that the Menzgold case had been raised and Hanson quickly replied that: “The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will not terminate his four-year tenure if he fails to pay Menzgold’s clients.”
On January 11 this year, the prosecution said, police intercepted the aforementioned video recording on UTV’s face book page, which attracted many comments from viewers who watched and heard the defendants make these “unguided” comments.
On January 12 of this year, prosecutors said, the National Intelligence Office had handed Hanson over to the police for investigations.
He said during the investigations, the police requested the original video from UTV and was played on the accused and he admitted that he made the comments.
The prosecution said the original video, which was in both Tui and English, was sent to Ghana Language Institute for reproduction and itself into English.
