Coup plot: 6 guilty, ACP Agordzo & 2 others acquitted 

In a recent development at the High Court, six individuals have been convicted for conspiracy to commit high treason and committing high treason in an alleged coup plot. However, Assistant Commissioner of Police Benjamin Agordzo, Colonel Gameli, and another junior military officer, Corporal Seidu Abubakar, have been acquitted.

The judgment was delivered on Wednesday after the submission of written arguments by the involved parties. The charges, dating back to April 24, 2021, involved Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm, the late Chief Executive Officer of Citadel Hospital, ACP Dr. Agordzo, and eight others.

The accused faced various charges, including conspiracy to high treason, abetment to high treason, and high treason. All ten accused individuals pleaded not guilty and were granted bail during the trial.

The passing of Dr. Mac-Palm led to the removal of his testimony from the records, officially confirmed by the Court. The prosecution, led by AG Godfred Yeboah Dame, included figures from the Attorney General’s Department while the defense team comprised of lawyers from Legal Aid and private practitioners.

The three-member panel of judges, sitting as additional High Court judges, consisted of Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, Justice Hafisata Amaleboba, and Justice Stephen Oppong, with Justice Asare-Botwe serving as the President of the panel. Throughout the trial, State Prosecutors presented 13 witnesses, including seven soldiers.
