In court today, Hilda Craig, a Senior State Attorney returned an amount of GH¢650 to the court which belonged to the first accused person Agharlor.

In the case of Jeff Omarsar, the third accused person's claim that the investigators have also collected his money, the prosecution said they have no money for him. She said it was only his mobile phone that was taken from him.

DOCUMENTS FROM CANADA

The Senior State Attorney also told the court that they are still waiting from documents from Canada which are very crucial to this matter.

On the issue of the order for Mr Appenteng, the supervision of the investigators in the case to appear before the court, she said, he was unable to appear before the court because “I am reliably informed he is out of the jurisdiction for a national assignment.

Lawyer Yaw Dankwa in his response to the money accused the investigators of hiding behind the prosecution to squander the third accused person (Jeff Omarsar) money.

On the absence of the supervisor, the lawyer said his superiors ought to have come to the court or written to inform the court.
