According to the Prosecutor, investigations into the matter informed the decision.

He also told the Court that the State intends to use some of the discharged suspects as witnesses in the case.

The remaining nineteen suspects including one woman are still facing charges of murder and conspiracy to murder.

Thirteen other suspects are currently on the run.
