The Cape Coast High Court would on Friday November 28, start the full trial of the case involving the demolition of the Kotokuraba Market, as a result of the inability of the Omanhen, Osabarima Kwesi Atta the second, to reach an amicable settlement between the parties.LAW

The case was referred to the Omanhen for an amicable out of court settlement, but at the previous sitting , the Omanhen submitted his report which documents did not have the signatures of the plaintiffs.
This prompted the judge to adjourn the case to Thursday November 27, for the plaintiffs to study the documents and either append their signatures to the terms of settlement, or reject them.

Osabarima Atta told the court presided over by Justice Kwasi Dapaah that all efforts made to get the parties reach an amicable settlement proved unsuccessful.
As a result of the information from the Omanhen, the judge had no alternative than to adjourn the case to Friday November 28 for the court to proceed with the full trial.
Both parties were present in court, but did not make any objection to the judge?s decision to give the case a full trial..

It would be recalled that, in September this year, eight aggrieved traders filed a motion for stay of execution on the demolition of the Kotokuraba Market, which was to pave way for the construction of an ultra-modern market.

The statement of claim, among others, said the plastic T&J materials used in constructing the temporary sheds for the market were inferior, and that the heat alone inside the sheds was a danger to the health and property of the traders.
