The Attorney General has told the High Court in Accra that it intends to discontinue charges against former Chief Director of Ministry of Health, Dr Sylvester Anemana who is currently out of the country for surgery.

Dr Aneman, the 2nd Accused person together with Dr Cassiel Ato Forson former Deputy Minister for Finance and Richard Dzakpa are standing trial for allegedly causing financial loss to the state to the tune of over €2.37 million following the purchase of ambulances described by prosecution as ‘unfit’ for purpose.

The decision was after wife of Dr Anemana who joined the court sitting via video link from India where her husband is set to undergo kidney transplant said the 2nd Accused is currently at the theatre and “cannot talk.”

Just when Justice Afia Serwah Asare Botwe, the presiding Judge who is a Court of Appeal sitting as an additional High was about to adjourn the case for two weeks, Godfred Yeboah Dame, through Richard Gymbiby, a Principal State Attorney said, the AG intends to file a Nolle Prosiqui to discontinue charges against him.

The Nolle Prosiqui when filed will drop all charges against the 2nd Accused.

Dr Ato Forson, 1st Accused and Richard Dzakpa, 2nd Accuaed were present.
