Prisons’ doctor, Konto Coker, yesterday told Justice Mary Sey at the Freetown High Court No.2 that the blood pressure of Omrie Golley, the first accused in a treason trial, was high.
Sworn by the holy Koran, Dr Coker told the court that Mr Golley’s condition was serious and that his blood pressure was 1601/20.
He disclosed that, “he [Golley] is responding poorly to treatment”.
When asked by Justice Sey what the causes of his blood pressure were, Dr Coker opined that boredom could play in the stability or fluctuation of blood pressure.
He averred that himself and one doctor attached to the Choithrams Memorial Hospital had been treating Mr Golley, and that the doctor advised him to be checking his blood pressure hourly.
Dr Coker told the court that by the next 15 days Mr Golley would be in court.
Justice Mary Sey then told him to file the medical report of Mr Golley to the court.
The case was adjourned to September 20.
