Lead counsel for the embattled spokesperson of Movement, Francis , has affirmed the legal team's readiness to file a new application for an order compelling the to produce documents that his client is alleged to have forged.

The lawyer disclosed that a formal request has already been submitted to the Immigration Service seeking a copy of the contested document.

The case involves the detention of Ms , a Belgian national associated with The New Force Movement, by the National Investigation Bureau.

The detention occurred in the course of the Bureau's efforts to identify individuals linked to the formation of the movement.

Ms Abbiusi was subsequently put before the and granted bail to the tune of GH¢20,000, and also required to report to the police three times a week.

Francis Xavier Sosu said the defence team will file an application if all efforts to get the alleged forged documents fail.

“It is important that the Immigration Service will disclose these documents to enable us to advise our client because as far as we are concerned, the documents that are alleged to have been forged were not documents that were forged by our client. So we really want to know those documents, and we have even requested for the officers who actually did those visas and so on and so forth.”

“That will help us properly interrogate the issue because, as far as we are concerned, she was never in charge of the process that led to the procurement of her document, which then led to the procurement of her visa. We are hopeful that they will provide us with those documents by the close of the day on Monday. If we don't have them, we will be forced to file a new application for an order for them to produce those documents before we go into the merits of the matter.”
