Mr Sampong said the AG could not file all its witness statements because the time fell within the lockdown period following the outbreak of COVID-19.
Mr Tony Lithur, counsel for Mr Ofosu-Ampofo on his part prayed the Court presided over by Justice Samuel K. Asiedu, Appeals Court Judge sitting as additional High Court Judge, to give a long adjournment to accommodate a pending application at the Supreme Court to stay proceedings.
Lawyers of Mr Ofosu-Ampofo had earlier filed an application seeking a stay of proceedings for an appeal at the Court of Appeal to be heard on the adoption of a witness statement of a prosecution witness.
The High Court had refused that application after adopting the witness statement of Mr Benjamin Osei Ampofo Adjei, the first prosecution witness and a staff of Multimedia Group (Adom FM).
The two accused have both pleaded not guilty to the charges.
They have both been granted a GHc100,000.00 bail each with a surety each.
The Court adjourned the trial to June 12.
