She was nonetheless taken away by the police shortly after leaving the courtroom.

Diamond Appiah was detained and charged on January 17 of this year for allegedly engaging in a $30 000 fraudulent land transaction.

After pleading not guilty to the charge, Appiah, who is accused of selling Ayisha Modi a plot of property in East Legon Hills for $30 000, was given a bail bond of GHC 300 000.

However, the prosecutor, DSP Evans Kesse, informed the court in court on Monday, August 21, 2023, that the case had been forwarded to the attorney general’s office for guidance. He claimed that as a result, a case withdrawal request was made.

As a result, DSP Kesse declared that the case “shall not continue” in accordance with the paperwork submitted by Mrs. Evelyn Keelson.

The prosecution had no case against his client, according to the accused’s attorney, and the use of the law to thwart justice was not for any reason.

While implying that the law is designed to serve the interests of justice, his client was subjected to inept action.
