JB killers re-arrested for further investigations

The police on Tuesday afternoon re-arrested the two men linked to the murder of a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa-North, Mr J.B. Danquah-Adu, a few hours after they had been discharged by the Accra High Court.

The Attorney General filed a nolle prosequi in the case of the two which had reached the stage where a jury was about to be empaneled for the trial of Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bosso.

According to Graphic Online’s court reporter, Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson, the AG explained that after studying the case docket, it has been realized that there was need to do further investigations.

Technically, investigators cannot conduct further investigations and interrogate the accused persons whilst the trial was underway, hence the filling of the nolle prosequi.

The filing of nolle prosequi meant the Attorney General wanted to discontinue with the prosecution.

Ebo Hawkson reported from the court that a Senior State Attorney, Ms Sefakor Batsa, told the court that based on section 54 of the criminal and other offences Act , 1960 (Act 30) the AG had filed a nolle prosequi not to continue with the prosecution.
