The Accra High Court has granted bail to Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Anthony Kwaku Boahen, who are the respective Chairman and Deputy Communication Director of the opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Ampofo and Boahen were each granted bail in the sum of Gh¢100,000 with one surety after they pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.

The case has been adjourned to Mary 6, 2019.

Background

Mr. Ampofo was invited after being heard in a leaked audio recording, outlining plans to match up against groups from the governing NPP, ahead of 2020 elections.

Meanwhile the NDC have condemned the manner in which the case against its National Chair and Deputy National Communication Officer has been handled by the authorities.

The Party is puzzled why the case against its National Chairman will be assigned to a justice at the Commercial Division at the High Court instead of the Criminal Division.

In a statement signed by the General secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, it described the charges leveled against Mr. Ampofo as illogical; saying despite the NDC’s strong disagreement with partisan prosecution, its expectation is that, the facts of this case position of the law, and the objective assessment of it will inform the outcome.

The Party invites its supporters to join the NDC in solidarity to defend the fundamental human rights of the people to promote the country’s Democracy.
