In the Cecilia Dapaah cash case, another defendant was granted bail as the court gave the prosecution two weeks to wrap out its investigation.

The Accra Circuit Court has approved a GHC300,000 bail with three sureties for the sixth suspect in the theft of money from the former sanitation minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah.

The prosecution did not object to the bail request made by the attorney for the sixth defendant, Job Pomary, who has been charged with receiving GHC300,000 dishonestly, during a hearing on Tuesday, August 22, 2023.

Akosua Agyapomaa Agyemang, an assistant state attorney, informed the court that the Job Pomary investigations were over.

The bail was approved by presiding judge Afia Owusua Appiah.

The accused should also surrender his passport at the registry, the court instructed, and the sureties must be residents of the Court’s territorial authority.

Until further notice, he must also appear in person at the police station once every two weeks.

In order to wrap up their investigations into the case alleging that $1 million and 300,000 euros were stolen from Madam Cecilia Dapaah’s home, State Prosecutors requested a two-week adjournment from the court.

The seven defendants were not allowed to enter a plea since the prosecution stated that the investigations were nearing their conclusion.

Patience Botwe, a hairdresser, is one of the accused, along with Sarah Agyei, a 30-year-old unemployed woman, Benjamin Sowah, a 29-year-old plumber, Malik Dauda, a 34-year-old unemployed man, Christiana Achab, a trader, Job Pomary, a mechanic, and Yahaya Sumaila, an excavator operator.

They are accused of stealing on 14 separate occasions.

September 5 has been set aside for the case.
