The Presiding Judge in the case involving #FixTheCountry activist Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor Justice Daniel Mensah has advised the lawyer not to make such pronouncements no matter how he feels about a regime.
The judge said his court cannot disable itself from granting the social activist bail but had a word of caution for him.
Justice Daniel Mensah on Wednesday, March 16 granted Mr Barker-Vormawor bail at GH¢2 million with two sureties, one of which must present documents with land properties.
In his submission, the judge said “No matter how we feel about regime, coup isn’t an option. I’ll encourage activism but know the extent”.
The judge disagreed with arguments by the prosecution that Oliver was a flight risk and unavailability of a fixed abode in Ghana.
He said the accused person had his passport in the possession of the state.
He also cited the three places of accommodation searched by the police as evidence to the fact that the accused had a fixed place of abode.
Oliver is expected to report once every week to the station of his arrest as part of his bail conditions.
