Dismissed Police Chief, DSP Gifty Mawuenyega Tehoda, suspects a strong case of conspiracy and a well-thought-out plot against her in the cocaine-turned-baking-soda scandal.

Whilst waiting patiently for a Human Rights Court to rule on the wrongful dismissal suit she brought against the police administration, Tehoda said those behind the plot will soon be unmasked.

She made the comments shortly after the court adjourned hearing to April 29 to allow for the defendants, to amend their statement of defence.

The Deputy Commander in charge of the Commercial Crimes Unit of the Police Service was interdicted in September 2011 following the arrest of one Nana Ama Martins who was accused of possessing parcels of substances suspected to be cocaine.

The parcels of suspected cocaine somehow metamorphosed into baking soda under mysterious circumstances in court.

Gifty Tehoda was linked to the disappearance of the cocaine and was arrested, interdicted and dismissed shortly after.

In the ensuing court case to establish the extent of her involvement in the cocaine-turned-baking-soda scandal, she was acquitted and discharged unconditionally by the Circuit Court in 2012.

Three years after her acquittal the police service has failed to reinstate her into the service.

She has consequently proceeded to the High Court (Human Rights Division) accusing the Service of wrongful dismissal and praying the court to order the service to reinstate her.

Her lawyers are also demanding compensation for what they describe as "unlawful detention and for withholding her promotion."

Afreh-Nuamah who has been following the case said the defendants are yet to call their final witness but have pleaded with the court to allow them to amend their defence, a request the court has granted especially because it was opposed by opposing counsel.

After hearing on Monday Tehoda said: "Everybody got to know it was a conspiracy [against me]," but will not name who she suspects were behind the set-up.

"I am innocent. I have not done anything," she pleaded, adding, "I am waiting for the day of declaration."
