The court presided over by Korkor Achaw Owusu has also ordered the members to sign a bond of good behaviour for 12 months.

They were charged for escaping from lawful custody after a group of young men believed to be their colleagues in the Delta Force stormed the court to free them following a two-week remand slapped on them.
