All the journalists are stranded outside the Courtroom while the case is being heard.

At the last hearing, Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni adjourned the case to today, September 25, 2020, to allow lawyers for Kennedy Agyapong to present legal arguments on why the court should stay proceedings until the Supreme Court rules on a judicial review application in relation to the case.
