Charles Antwi was jailed 10 years by an Accra circuit court after he was arrested at the church attended by president John Mahama
An Accra Human Rights court has quashed the judgment of an Accra Circuit Court which sentenced Charles Antwi, the gunman who went to President John Mahama’s church to kill him.
According to the judge his ruling is based on the record of the circuit court presented to him which clearly shows the circuit court judge erred.
The judge further ordered the applicant to be released and sent to the Accra Psychiatric hospital.
The ruling followed a suit filed by Human Rights lawyer, Francis Xavier Sosu which prayed the court to set aside its sentencing for Charles Antwi citing errors in the judgment of the circuit court.
Charles Antwi was sentenced to 10-years imprisonment for illegally possessing an arm on his first appearance in court. The sentence was immediately pronounced after the suspect confessed to wanting to kill President Mahama so he could become president.
