Justice Afia Serwaah Asare-Botwe who president over the case at the Accra High Court acquitted and discharged all seven after it upheld a submission of no case filed by the defence lawyers.
With a new Special Prosecutor in office, the case has been reopened and trial will resume tomorrow.

In addition, he is sued for the illegal transfer of foreign exchange from Ghana to Dubai without having the required license to undertake such transaction.
