More 'Trouble' For Rev. Owusu Bempah As New Charges Are Set To Levelled Against Him By Police

The trial of the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International saw a second day in court as both defendants and prosecutors appeared in court. It can be recalled that last week, lawyers for the defendants failed to secure bail from an Accra Circuit court. Late the lawyers went to a high court and managed to secure a bail on health reasons.

Today, Monday, September 20, 2021, Rev. Owusu Bempah and his junior pastors appeared in court. Contrary to the fracas that happened last week, this week saw heavy security and the media were even tricked of the time for the proceedings. By the time most came, the case had been ended. Lawyer Gary Nimako reminded the court that they had gone to a high court and secured a bail. The prosecutor, Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey insisted that they want leave so that they amend their charges against the man of God.

The Police insisted that they had done advanced investigations and were ready to lay new charges against Owusu Bempah. The Judge agreed and tasked the Prosecutor to prepare their case and present their charges.

The lawyers for Owusu Bempah had initially also asked for adjournment till October 25th but the judge presided by Her Honor Afia Owusua refused because it was too long and upon consultations with all parties in the case postponed the case to October 5, 2021. The time given is meant to give rest to the defendants as well as the prosecutor so the former gets to know the new charges against them.
