The six jurors who were selected by the Accra High court to preside over the case involving 14 suspects in the murder of the late Major Maxwell Mahama has dropped to five as one of the presiding judges opted out.
The jurors who were selected to head the case on Monday April 12 2018 were selected by the suspects on the advise of their lawyers declining one more which will make the the complete seven members needed for the case.
The case was then adjourned for today Monday April 16 for the selection of the last juror as demanded by law.
In court today however, one of the two ladies among the selected members of the panel presented a letter to the court, saying she cannot be among the the selected jurors on the grounds that she was not qualified and feels uncomfortable to take the case.
The Accra High court drew attention earlier today and the case has been adjourned to April 25 2018 for hearing.
