An Accra Circuit Court Judge Sussana Eduful has discharged the administrator of Empress Leak, Anderson Ofosuhene Anim for want of prosecution.
The ruling followed the failure of the Prosecution led by Inspector Princess Tetteh Boafo to file necessary disclosures for the past year.
Mr. Anim, the man at the center of electronic child pornography in the country, was charged for publishing obscene materials and other cyber offences. He was also charged for extortion and Money laundering.
The prosecutor Princess Tetteh Boafo said, the docket is still with the Attorney-General’s Department awaiting advice.
Counsel for the accused person, Lawyer Yaw Danquah told the court that prosecution has for the past year failed to comply with orders of the court to file disclosures.
According to him nothing has happened in the case and prayed the court to strike the case out.
He said the police know where to find the accused person when they are ready to prosecute him.
The court said it has given the prosecution enough time and opportunity to file its disclosures but after a year, nothing has happened, therefore it has become necessary to call off the case.
