Court adjourns BECE withheld results case to Feb 6

An Accra Human Rights Court presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah, has ordered the defense counsel for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to file an affidavit or a witness statement in support of an application he filed at the court registry.

According to the Judge, this will enable him and the court appreciate the issues for final determination of the case involving the withholding of 2017 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results of close to 40 students from different schools.

WAEC withheld the results on the grounds of examination malpractices but the parents who were not happy over the development dragged the examination conducting body to court for a ruling to order the release of the results.

At the hearing on Friday, January 19, counsel for WAEC, Reverend Victor Brew, prayed the court to allow his witness to testify in court through a demonstration of software to argue his case.

According to him, the software demonstration holds the explanation to how WAEC was able to determine that the students had engaged in exam malpractices.

But the court declined to his plea with the view that proceedings cannot be turned into a lecture or seminar room.

According to Justice Anthony Yeboah, the court has gone past the age where witnesses come to illustrate their testimonies through the use of digital objects adding that those illustrations could be filed on paper.

His Lordship also mentioned that an opportunity shall be given to the counsel for the plaintiff, Dr Joe Attipoe, to react to the application.

The case has since been adjourned to February 6, 2018.
