CODEO Statement on the Sentencing of 13 Accused Delta Force Members

Posted on Oct-27 2017

The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) is deeply dismayed by the outcome of the investigations and judicial proceedings involving thirteen members of the 'Delta Force', a vigilante group associated with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP). The sentencing follows a case of the group's assault on the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, and the attendant destruction of public property that occurred at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council in March 2017. CODEO is concerned with the apparent weak quality of the official investigations into the case and the subsequent prosecution of the accused, which concluded with a sentence of a fine of GHC1, 800 for each or, in default, twelve months imprisonment.
