The three were initially charged to pay a GH₵600.00 fine equivalent to 50 penalty units, but the charge was overturned into a sentence after they failed to pay the fine.

The court presided over by Her Ladyship Juliet Duduo, sentenced the trio to eight months imprisonment for contravening Act 851 section 56 (a) and (b) of the Public Health Act 2012.

Four other persons, namely Diana Doudu,19, Regina Tsotsoo Money, 41, Elizabeth Serwaa 47, and Grace Akolatse, 38, were also handed the same sentence but were freed after managing to pay the GH₵600 fine each, bringing the total amount to GH₵4,200.

Meanwhile, the cases of four others who are also being trialed for dumping waste at unauthorized places have been adjourned to 5th April, 2018.

As a result, a task force has been put in place to move from place to place to check for defaulters and subsequently arrest them.
