An Accra High Court has discharged three journalists charged with stealing and unauthorized access to electronic records.

This follows an application by Senior State Attorney Stella Ohene Appiah that the state does not intend to continue with the case at this stage. 

ModernGhana Editor Emmanuel Adjarfo Abugri and modern Ghana journalist Emmanuel Britwum were earlier picked up by operatives of the national security amidst accusations that they had been assaulted.

An Editor of Accra based radio station  Peace fm Emmanuel Obeng Manu was also later arrested and charged for the same offences.

The case which was filed on Friday morning was surprisingly withdrawn by the state prosecutors at 1:30pm when the case was called.

Justice Afia Asare Botwe discharged the three journalists striking out the case as withdrawn.

Lawyer for Emmanuel Adjarfo Samson Lardi Anyenini says this confirms his position that his client had not committed any crime
