The Attorney General?s Department has filed a case of Nolle Prosequi in the Supreme Court stating categorically that they are no more interested in continuing the case involving Assin North MP, Kennedy Agyapong.

Hon. Agyapong has been standing trial on three charges ? treason felony, terrorism and attempted genocide. These charges were preferred against the Assin North MP after he made some ethnocentric comments on his radio station ? Oman FM.

The State has issued fresh, but lesser charges ? provocation of riots and offensive conduct ? against the legislator.

State Prosecutors earlier this month filed an Order of Certiorari in the Supreme Court which was quashed by the court.

The latest move to discontinue the case comes on the back of many criticisms that the State was not putting its best foot forward in the trial of the case starting with the charges that were earlier brought against the MP.

Lead counsel for Mr. Agyapong, Nii Ayikoi Otoo, however, stated in court that they had not been served with the new order of Nolle Prosequi and asked that they be served appropriately but this was objected by the presiding judge Justice Charles Quist.

There were shouts of jubilation from friends and family of Mr. Agyapong who had gathered at the court premises upon hearing the news of his freedom from the charges.
