The Human Rights court presided over by Gifty Adjei Addo has deferred judgement in the case of embattled Police Chief Gifty Mawuenyega Tehoda for a second time running as it fails to deliver its judgement on Thursday on the civil application seeking compensation for her wrongful dismissal from the Police Service.

The court at the last sitting scheduled today to deliver its judgment after it granted an application by lawyers of the former Police Chief praying the court to adopt proceedings and the addresses in the court of the now dismissed high court Judge, Justice Kofi Essel Mensah.

The adoption subsequently paved way for the court to deliver its judgement.

Today in court, the judge said she discovered a conflicting parallel suit by the applicant that was filed in November, 2012 and thus needed clarification.

The said conflicting suit has been removed from the records and the court has rescheduled the judgement date to March 31, 2017.

The case involving DSP Tehoda began in September 2011 when one Nana Ama Martins was arrested for possessing large parcels suspected to be cocaine which later turned into bicarbonate or baking soda.

Tehoda was linked to the disappearance of the cocaine and she was interdicted and subsequently dismissed from the Police Service.
