The court took decision after the prosecution told the court the court it had dropped the charges against the eight.

The Minority addressing the press on their release said it was obvious from the court's ruling that it was done for narrow political expediency because the men belong to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

"We find it very bizarre that the Hon. Attorney-General, Ms Gloria Akufo, who assured the entire citizenry of her commitment to fairness ....will claim that she exercised the said constitutional discretion on grounds merely that there was a lack of evidence," he noted.
