The Public Relations Officer of the Police CID, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Juliana Obeng, told the Ghanaian Times in a telephone interview yesterday, that the docket on the case had been sent to allocation, which will determine the type of court the case would be heard and the date for him to appear before it.

The NDC national chairman is on a GH¢400,000 bail with two sureties.

When contacted, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo confirmed the charges preferred against him by the Police CID on Thursday, but declined further comments on the matter since according to him, the issue was being handled by his lawyers.

He has denied the allegations and said the tape was doctored.
