The Commercial Division of the Accra High Court has struck out the 68 charges against Dr Kwabena Duffuor and eight others.

This was after the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Yvonne Atakorah Obuobisah prayed the court for the old charges filed in March to be dropped.

According to the DPP, the prosecution is amending some portion of the earlier charge sheet with a new one filed on June 17, 2020.

The court presided over by Justice Philip Bright Mensah, a Court of Apeal judge sitting with the additional responsibility as a High Court judge struck out the old charges as withdrawn.

The court in striking the case out said, all the accused persons are discharged of the old charges. But their plea will be taken for the new charges.

Their plea is currently being taken of the new charges.
