The court took decision after the prosecution told the court the court it had dropped the charges against the eight.

"We find it very bizarre that the Hon. Attorney-General, Ms Gloria Akufo, who assured the entire citizenry of her commitment to fairness ....will claim that she exercised the said constitutional discretion on grounds merely that there was a lack of evidence," he noted.
