Earlier charges against Delta Forces dropped
The 13 members of the Delta Force facing trial for
allegedly assaulting a public officer have been
slapped with a new charge.

Prosecutor ACP Okyere Darko told the KMA Circuit
Court Tuesday morning that the Attorney General
has asked them to withdraw earlier charges of
assaulting a public officer, conspiracy to
assault, and causing unlawful damage.

He again told the court that the suspects are to
be charged for rioting per the AG’s advice.

Presiding Judge Mary Senkyire, as a result, struck
out all the earlier charges. The suspects have
since been re-arrested as their lawyers try to
secure bail for them.

Lawyer for some of the accused, Matthew Appiah,
was unhappy with the turn of events but said they
will comply with the AG’s advice. “We will comply
though the police are yet to take a decision on
where to keep them,” he told MG News‘s Ibrahim
Abubakar.

“We are yet to go and see if we can get bail for
them.” The 13 suspects will now be on trial at a
district court. “We have insisted that the charges
against them are unfounded and we still stand by
those stands that we have taken,” the lawyer
pointed out.

The 13 were arrested for assaulting the Ashanti
Regional Security Coordinator in March. But they
were later ‘freed’ by some members of the pro-New
Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group. WATCH:
