The Atasemanso Circuit Court has postponed the case involving 3 military officers and three civilians for their alleged involvement in an attempted robbery operation to September 26, 2023.
The prosecution has requested for a month to enable them conduct further investigations and secure phone call conversations of the suspects.
The officers and their civilian counterparts were arrested on July 5 this year at Abuakwa, a suburb of Kumasi.
The arrest, according to police sources, followed a tip-off.
The complainant’s lawyer, Evans Amankwa, has expressed satisfaction with how the prosecution is handling the case so far.
“The case involves so many phone technicalities and technology that the suspected accused persons used in trying to execute their agenda. So, for the prosecution to be able to establish the veracity or otherwise of their charges, they have to go through their phone.
“As a lawyer holding brief for the complainant, we are happy with the steps being taken by the prosecution. We believe that at the end of the day, we will be able to establish the truth in the matter,” Mr. Amankwa had said.
The accused persons have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime and attempted robbery.
