Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor, who assaulted the 36-year-old woman at a Midland Savings and Loans branch has been granted bail.
The court presided over by Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye, granted Frederick Amanor bail of Sixty thousand Ghana cedis with two sureties, alongside three other accused persons who are employees of Midland Savings and loans.
The accused persons who have been charged with assault and abetment of assault, pleaded not guilty.
The bail granted by the court followed an application by the lawyers of the accused persons who pleaded for the release of their clients during the period of the trial.
Frederick Amanor was arrested after the video of the incident went viral on social media.
The incident sparked public outrage, drawing condemnation from Amnesty International, Ghana Bar Association, the Ministry for Gender, Children and Social Protection and a number of Civil Society Organizations.
Frederick Amanor has been interdicted and his uniform and all other police accoutrements taken from him, pending internal disciplinary proceedings.
In addition, an investigation has commenced into the conduct of officials of the Midland Savings and Loans limited.
The company has suspended all staff that were on duty at the time and has agreed on a compensation package for the victim, Patience Osafo.
