The court, presided over by Eleanor Kakra Barnes-Botchwey, argued that the counsel for the defense failed to reveal the permanent place of abode of the suspects.
It also held that though the accused persons were entitled to bail under the law, the court can exercise its discretion with regard to granting bail, peacefmonline.com reports.
The accused persons have been identified as Dehang Li, Haifang Zhou, Jiauong Huan, Li Hui Lauo and Jung Gang Quin.
In other news, Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that three evangelical pastors of the Kingdom Life Ministries have embezzled a total of £456,853 from the church.
They allegedly paid themselves out of the church’s charity account and a three-year investigation revealed that the three people breached their duties.
Per a report obtained from standard.co.uk and video that has since gone viral, the suspects, Anthony Osei-Dankwa, Emmanuel Owusu Ansah and Olivia Ansah submitted a list of estimated expenses relating to construction work, international flights and video production.
An analysis of the documents submitted however shows that the details did not match the withdrawals, as most of the payments made were “round sums”.
The report added that the suspects failed to comply with the provisions of their duties and mismanaged the funds as a result.
