Defense Moves To Subpoena WIPNET In Murder Trial

By Comfort Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA, June 9 (LINA) - The Defense in the trial of Michael Dahn, who allegedly killed one Antoinette Peters, has requested the Criminal Court “A” to subpoena the leadership of the Women in Peace Building Network (WITNET).

The Defense specifically wants Madam Bernice Freeman, head of WIPNET, to provide information that will lead to a justifiable determination of the case.

Defendant Dahn was arrested by the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) on January 4, 2013 for the alleged killing of Madam Peters on 12th Street, Sinkor in the Compound of UN officer Bornfree Adelee.

Meanwhile, the Presiding Judge of the Criminal “A”, Judge Blamo Dixon, has granted the application of the defense team and ordered the Clerk of the Court to issue the writ of subpoena.

He added that it should be served on Madam Freeman and the entire leadership of WIPNET to appear in court on Tuesday, June 10, to provide all information they have pertaining to the case.

He advised the defense team to liaise with the office of the Clerk of the Court in order to superintend the issuance and servicing of the said precepts.  

The trial continues on Tuesday, June 10.
