At the Fast Track High Court in Accra, where he was sentenced, the presiding judge Justice Efua Serwa Botwe said no one was above the law before jailing him with hard Labour for sim box fraud.

She said the jail term was a lenient one because Dr Tweneboah had operated the SIM box fraud for less than six months.
