A Kumasi Circuit Court has discharged a case eight persons who aided the escape of the 13 Delta Force Members.

The Court presided over by her honor Patricia Amponsah discharged the case because the prosecution lacks evidence against the accused.

The eight were charged with causing disturbances in court, resisting arrest and rescuing person in lawful custody.

The Prosecution today tendered a response from the Attorney General after it took a docket for advice of the case.

According to the prosecutor, ACP Okyere Darko, the police did not have enough evidence to support the charges leveled against the accused persons.

Lawyers for the accused say they have been vindicated since they earlier argued that their clients were innocent.

Matthew Appiah is one of the lawyers and he tells Kapital News’ Hafiz Tijani that “as we have already indicated, there was no evidence to show that these person were the people who forcibly entered the court room on that fateful day and the docket was sent to the Attorney General’s Department and  they studied it so that is their conclusion. ”

“We thought that the police had come with their evidence but the attorney general looked at it and came to that conclusion so were not expecting it. We were just informed by the police this morning.” He added.

Meanwhile, some of the Delta Force members who spoke to Kapital News expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the case.
