Arise Ghana wants charges against arrested protestors dropped
Pressure group, Arise Ghana, has admonished the Police to drop all charges against 31 of its members who were arrested during its demonstration two weeks ago.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, the group said the persons arrested during the protest are innocent.
The leadership of the group indicated that the arrested individuals will have legal representation as they are poised to prove their innocence.
Bernard Mornah, a member of the Arise Ghana group, who addressed the press described the charges against the arrested protestors as frivolous and trumped-up
“All those arrested are innocent and never capable of any breach of any law claimed by the police,” he stressed.
“It is unfortunate that these innocent protesters arrested by the Ghana police service were starved as well denied access to their families, friends and counsel.”
