Twenty out of the 21 people recently arrested on suspicion of being linked to the separatist Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) have been discharged by an Accra Circuit Court.
They were picked up from a secret training camp at Kpevedui, near Dzodze in the Ketu North Municipality in the Volta Region on February 17, 2020.
Graphic Online’s reporter, Justice Agbenorsi who was in court Wednesday reported that the circuit court discharged the 20 after they were charged with participating in a campaign of a prohibited organisation and attending the meeting of a prohibited organisation.
At Wednesday’s hearing, the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Simon Apiosornu told the court presided over by Mrs Ellen Ofori Ayeh that the 20 accused persons were deceived into believing that they were being trained into the Ghana Armed Forces and hence prayed for them to be discharged.
The court subsequently discharged them.
