Video: I’m not guilty – Hajia Fati pleads in court
Hajia Fati pleads not guilty to assault and damage charges.
Loudmouth Hajia Fati has made her first appearance in court after she was sued for allegedly beating up Adom FM reporter, Ohemaa Sakyiwaa.
The embattled New Patriotic Party, NPP, loyalist pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and damage of property leveled against her by the state when she was arraigned before the Adjabeng Magistrate Court Monday morning
The NPP loyalist had admitted to assaulting the reporter from Accra based Adom FM who was sent to the party HQ to cover events there.
Hajia’s lawyers, led by Nkrabea Effah Darteh and another counsel who was standing in for Freddy Blay, pleaded for bail for her; assuring the court she will make herself available for trial.
Her counsel told the court that the case against his client has unnecessarily been blown out of proportion with a high level of media trial going on.
