A medical report submitted to the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) has confirmed that the man who attempted to kill President Mahama suffers from systematized delusional disorder.
According to Accra-based Joy FM, the report was written by Professor Joseph Bediako Asare of the Peace Bea Consultancy Clinic Limited after he examined Charles Antwi.
According to the report, Charles has a history of mental instability and has not received proper treatment.
It further states that Charles has no insight into his condition and has not regretted the offence he had set out to commit.
The report recommends that the suspect be made to receive psychiatric treatment at a secured unit because he is a high security risk.
Charles Antwi was swiftly jailed ten years for unlawful possession of firearm after he confessed he wanted to kill the President when he stormed his church with the fully loaded gun.
An Accra High Court will Monday August 24, hear the re-trial of the suspect.
While the Attorney-General is pushing for a re-trial, lawyer for Charles Antwi, Fracis Xavier-Sosu wants the ruling quashed and the suspect acquitted.
He says the medical report must provide enough proof that Charles Antwi was wrongfully convicted.
He said the suspect’s demeanor and utterances when he first came before the court was enough for the judge to believe that he was a person of unsound mind and ordered for a psychiatric evaluation.
According to him the judge erred when he failed to do this and the medical reports confirms it.
