Western Togoland: Eight suspects plead not guilty to 11 charges

Eight of the remaining 26 persons who have been charged in the Western Togoland Restoration Front case have pleaded not guilty to eleven charges leveled against them.

Seven of them have been remanded into prison custody to reappear on August 10.

At the Accra High Court before Justice Mary Ekue Nsenkyire, the accused persons were charged with being members of a prohibited organisation, attending meetings of a prohibited organisation and accepting contribution of a prohibited organisation.

Lawyers for the accused persons were asked by the court to make a formal application for bail after prosecution prayed that, the accused persons be remanded into lawful custody.

The second accused person Godwin Awudza, was however, admitted to bail in the sum of 200 thousand cedis with two sureties to be justified on health grounds.

The sureties according to the court, must deposit a valid National Identification Card to the Registrar of the Court. The prosecution was ordered to file disclosures and witness statements within two weeks.
