The State has amended the charge sheet in the case of Dr Duffuor and eight others by adding three new charges.

Early this year, the accused persons were slapped with 68 charges but that was withdrawn today and replaced with new charges adding up to 71.

The accused persons all pleaded not guilty to the charges and were admitted to the same bail conditions as earlier granted by the court.

The new charges include falsification of uniBank account, conspiracy and defrauding.

The court presided over by Justice Bright Mensah, adjourned the matter to July 16 and 17, for Case Management Conference.

This was after the defence lawyers have prayed the court to give them ample time to peruse the voluminous documents filed by the state.
