Prosecution of the three arrested South African ex Police Officers who are in the grips of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) for alleged acts which threaten national security, failed to commence today as expected.
This was because the investigative agency was unsuccessful in completing documentations to enable them officially charge the detainees. They are however expected to have their day in court tomorrow (Thursday) at the Accra Circuit Court 1.
Kasapafmonline.com has picked information that the three South African ex cops are to be represented in court by astute lawyer Nana Asante Badiatuo.
Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis, 54, (Rtd), WO/ Denver Dwayhe Naidu, 39, (Rtd) and 45-year-old Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani (Rtd) were arrested at the El-Capitano Hotel, at Agona Duakwa in the Central Region, while training fifteen young men in various military drills, including unarmed combat, weapon handling, VIP protection techniques and rapid response maneuvers.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has confirmed the 15 people being trained by three South African ex-police men are part of its security detail, but denied links to any treasonable motive.
Meanwhile, Kasapafmonline.com is reliably informed that officials of the South African High Commission have on Wednesday been granted access by the BNI to the three ex cops.
This was after the Commission sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requesting access to their nationals.
