Jurors' strike delays Adum killer cop's case

The late Victoria Dapaah

The trial of the alleged murder of 26-year-old Victoria Dapaah faces a setback as the seven-member jury is on a strike, demanding unpaid allowances.

The court adjourned proceedings until December 4, 2023, as a result.

The absence of jurors disrupted the scheduled testimonies of witnesses, with the strike ongoing since November. 

None of the jurors was in court on Monday for the case

Despite multiple adjournments, family members of the victim express hope for justice. 

Nana Addo Barima, head of the deceased's family, urged the government to address the jurors' concerns and ensure their prompt return to court.
