An Accra High Court has ruled that a certificate issued to Bawku Central MP to be absent from court due to Parliamentary privileges does not apply because he is an accused person in the case and not a witness.

The case, she said, will therefore, proceed and be dealt with expeditiously.

Mr. Ayariga’s lawyers raised concerns about the charges against him. The state prosecutors however, argued against it and have filed documents supporting their view, Joy News’ Joseph Ackah-Blay reported.

The same happened with the two charges leveled against the MP and the case has been adjourned to Monday.
