Convener for #Fix The Country Movement, Oliver Barker Vormawor, has told the Tema High Court that the offense of Treason Felony which he has been accused of, is not supported by the facts of the case.

According to him, the state has no genuine or reasonable, or probable cause for his arrest or continuous detention.

“…That the offense of Treason felony is not supported by the facts of this case.”

“That I am advised by counsel, and I verily believe the same to be true that the Respondent has no genuine or reasonable or probable cause for my arrest or continuous detention.”

In his affidavit in reply to the AG’s affidavit in opposition to his motion for bail pending trial, Oliver Barker per his counsel, Dr. Justice Srem-Sai of the Praetorium Solicitors has also indicated that one who month into his arrest and detention, the respondent is yet to charge him or take a statement from him in respect of the charge of Treason felony thus praying the court to grant him bail pending trial and to make any order(s) which it deems fit.

Per the affidavit in opposition deposed to by an Attorney of the Office of the Attorney-General, Anastacia Karimu, the AG indicates that contrary to paragraph 7 of the applicant’s affidavit in support, evidence gathered so far by the police can sustain a charge of Treason felony.

In addition, the Attorney General notes that investigations are not yet concluded, and by the applicant’s conduct, he has shown that he will interfere or hamper investigations if granted bail thus prays the court to refuse the application for bail pending trial.

Also, the state disagrees and denies all averments contained in the applicant’s affidavit in support of the application and indicates its opposition to the motion for bail pending trial.

Further, it notes that per investigations, the applicant has since 2021 been inciting his social media followers to effect by an unlawful means the overthrow of the constitutionally elected government through a number of Social media posts.

Moreover, it states that the applicant’s conduct revealed a systematic pattern to incite his social media followers into accepting his endeavor to usurp the constitutional organs of Government.

The Tema High Court has meanwhile adjourned the bail hearing to Monday, March 14, 2022, for the applicant’s counsel to move the motion for bail pending trial.
