Court to pronounce judgement on Obinim tomorrow

The High Court hearing the case involving Bishop Daniel Obinim, the founder of Godsway International Ministry, who allegedly assaulted a radio panelist at Hot FM is set to announce a date for judgment on July 23, 2015.
This was after counsel for the bishop told the court, presided over Justice Abdulai, that they were in the process of filing their address.
The state attorney in the case, Joyce Buerko Debrah, was not in court due to the strike action embarked on by state attorneys. However, she is believed to have filed her address.
The trial judge had earlier ordered the state to file their address by May 22, 2015.
He also directed Obinim to file his address within two weeks after the state.
The accused told the court that he compensated the panelists of Hot FM, an Accra-based radio station, who were at the studio when he and his boys stormed there in 2011.
The bishop said his church elders informed him that the panelists had asked for compensation.
Obinim said this under cross-examination by Mrs Debrah.
He explained that Kwame Katakyie, the host, Shadrack Adu and a certain Amoaku told his elders that they could decide the outcome of the case so he should compensate them.
He said he consequently compensated them through his church elders, but did not disclose the amount involved to the court.
The bishop stated that he went to the station to clarify allegations of marital infidelity, but was assaulted and pushed out of the station.
The pastor said he never saw any crowbar at the station and did not have any physical contact with Kwame Ntim, the panelist who alleged that Obinim had harmed him.
