A warrant has been issued by the Kaneshie District Court for the arrest of the Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Hon. Francis Xavier Sosu.

The warrant was issued after the Madina lawmaker failed to appear before the District Court on three occasions since criminal charges were filed against him after leading a demonstration in his constituency.

Arguing in court on Monday, November 23, 2021, the Prosecutor,ASP Sylvestre Asare insisted that the Madina lawmaker cannot be allowed to send a anyone to represent him in a criminal matter.

According to the prosecutor, Lawyer Sosu “has a clear intention and has demonstrated that to this court. It amounts to disrespect to this court.”

Speaking in court, Mr. Victor Adawudu, lawyer for the Madina MP told the court that the Hon. Francis Xavier Sosu is attending a parliamentary committee meeting hence his inability to show up in court.

The court has however issued a warrant for the Madina Lawmaker to be arrested.

At least two charges have been levelled against the Madina MP, namely causing damage to public property and obstruction of highway.
