Volta secessionists’ case: Court unhappy with prosecutor, detectives

The Commercial Court 6 Division of the Accra High Court has adjourned the hearing of the case involving the Volta secessionists to 8 July 2019.

The court further instructed the state prosecutor Fred Awindango and the Detectives handling the case to speed up investigations into the matter, otherwise, the court will have no choice than to discharge the nine accused persons.

According to the court, the prosecutors cannot continue to use procedures to curtail the fundamental human rights and freedoms of the accused persons and further flout the orders of the court.

The court gave the order following the inability of Detective Ali Ganani and his colleague to collate the assets and other landed properties presented to the BNI as part of a requirement for a bail condition.

The court expressed dissatisfaction when the state prosecutor prayed for an adjournment to enable his team to gather more evidence to prosecute the accused persons.

Again, the eminent panel bemoaned the constant adjournment being sought by the state at the expense of the accused persons and slated 8 July 2019 for the hearing.

Speaking after the court proceedings, the leader of the group, Charles Kwame Kudzordzi, called for negotiations to let peace prevail so as to halt future attempts by generations unborn to go on the same tangent.
