Eleven out of the twenty-three prisoners shortlisted to benefit from the Justice For All Programme at the Akuse prisons cannot be accounted for.

Their lawyer, Francis Sosu suspects the police have deliberately transferred them to other prisons ahead of their hearing today, Friday April 17, 2015.

He believes their possible release after today's hearing will expose the shoddy investigations done by the police before putting them into custody.

Speaking to Starr News, Sosu said the police are deliberately trying to frustrate the Justice for all programme.

“ If you look at the police reaction to the Justice for all Programme, it leaves much to be desired.

“Because after some prisoners were discharged under the programme at the Koforidua prisons, it took a long while before the police allowed them to go.

“And when we went to the Nsawam prisons, they did the same thing there too. Many of the people who were discharged were not released on time. And the Police went ahead and threatened them that they were taking them to another court,” he bemoaned.
