The Court, presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh, ordered the counsel to make the application formal.
Madam Debrah-Ablormeti also informed the Court that prosecution had not served the client with the necessary processes.
The prosecution pleaded for extension to file the processes, witness statement and disclosures.
The Court adjourned trial to February 15, 2022.
