Freeing Delta 8 an insult to judiciary – Minority

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed its disgust at the freeing of eight members of New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Force.

According to Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu who addressed the news conference said the decision by the Attorney General’s Department to free the suspects amounts to a “total disrespect to the judiciary.

The eight members of the NPP militia group, Delta Force, standing trial for assaulting a judge and disrupting court processes were discharged Wednesday following the prosecution’s inability to provide evidence.

The Kumasi Circuit Court presided over by Justice Patricia Amponsah discharged the suspects, Wednesday, for lack of evidence.

But Haruna Iddrisu expressed shock at the shoddy work done by the Attorney Generals Department.

He indicated that, the prosecution could have made use of video footage that has been circulating on social media following the attack.

The Minority leader noted that, given the development, it was obvious from the Court’s decision, the Attorney-General, Gloria Akuffo and the President Akufo-Addo were not interested in the continuation of the matter.
