The Court of Appeal has acquitted and discharged top lawyer, Tsatsu Tsikata, who was jailed in 2008 for causing financial loss to the state.
Tsitaka was charged and prosecuted by the JA Kufuor government of causing financial loss to the state when he was chief executive officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC).
The court said there was a miscarriage of justice when an Accra Fast Track High Court on June 18.2008, found him guilty on three counts of wilfully causing financial loss of GH¢230,000 to the state and another count of misapplying public property.
Tsikata was pardoned by President Kufuor In late 2008, but he went to court on June 30, 2016 to, according to him, prove his innocence.
He was excited at the decision of the Court of Appeal and quoted Psalm 91, according to a report by Accra-based Joy FM.
