The Attorney-General has expressed surprise at the conviction of the self confessed gun man of President John Mahama, Charles Antwi.

According to the AG represented in court by Director of public prosecution Yvonne Atakora Oboubisa, Charles Antwi was only sent to court on the day of his conviction to be remanded in lawful custody for further investigations.

She gave this indication when she appeared in court in the case where a private legal practitioner Francis Sosu filed an application at the human rights court to set aside the conviction of Charles Antwi on mental grounds.

The state in the application said the trial judge Justice Francis Obiri erred in his judgment due to the fact that there was an error in the face of the record. The state are asking for a retrial and a thorough examination of the convict.

Charles Antwi has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for entering the church [Assemblies of God] of the President John Dramani Mahama with a gun.

He confessed to the circuit that he had wanted to assassinate the President.

However, Francis Xavier Sosu said the writ filed by the Attorney General is needless.

This he said was because; he had earlier filed a similar application which will be decided by the court  on Friday.
