‘Tagor and Issah Abass not guilty’
Audrey Micah, Ghanadot

Accra, July 25, Ghanadot - The Court of Appeal yesterday set free Kwabena Amaning, aka Tagor, and Alhaji Issah Abass, convicted on November 28, 2007 on drug charges and sentenced to 15 years in jail.

The three-man panel court unanimously agreed that the trial High Court erred fundamentally in convicting the suspects and so proceeded to acquit and discharge them.

Tagor and Abass were tried, found guilty and sentenced in the famous MV Benjamin cocaine case in which large parcels of cocaine were reported missing from the vessel in 2006. They had pleaded not guilty.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General’s Department has served notice it would be heading to the Supreme Court to challenge the ruling of the Appeals Court which upheld the appeal of the two men against their conviction on drug charges.
