- The Ghana bar association has expressed shock over the release of 8 Delta Force suspects
- The bar says it will be taking a closer look at the ruling
The release of the Delta Force suspects has shocked members of the Ghana Bar Association.
The association, which represents all judges and lawyers in Ghana had wanted all Delta Force suspects to be jailed for “disrupting justice” but the ruling on Wednesday which went in favour of the 8 men is said to have shocked them.
Vice president of the association, Tony Forson says they will be taking a second look into the judge’s ruling so as to know what indeed led to the release.
Already, government has distanced itself from the ruling as information minister, Mustapha Hamid claims the attorney general was never consulted before the ruling on that fateful day.
"We don't really know what the truth is [but] when a lawyer is in court, the brief he has is what he use and not the information in the media," Mr Forson revealed to Joy FM.
The release of these members saw one of its members boast of how the group will now become very popular since government through the order of the judge, had let them out of the jaws of the law.
YEN gathers that the attorney general, Gloria Akufo, is meeting with the president on this controversial issue as a move not to recall these members of the Delta Force could suffer the NPP a major political blow.
