Family of the late Major Maxwell Mahama, the military officer who was killed last year by an angry mob, has expressed their displeasure at the number of persons standing trial for the offence.
Fourteen (14) are currently standing trial for the murder of the late soldier. But the lack of legal representation for five of the suspects forced judge to adjourn when the case was called today [Monday].
Spokesperson for the family, Zakaria Ahmed, says a lot of people have been left off the hook.
According to him, the family expected to see more people facing trial ‘’than we have’’.
‘’Looking at what we saw in the videos and the number of people that were arrested at the beginning, we thought that we would have had more people…We had a mob action and so we expect a mob trial. Let the court look at everybody, let them come to the court and come and defend themselves,’’ he noted.
An Accra High court few weeks ago commenced hearing on the matter after a Circuit Court committed them to trial after 13 of the 14 individuals were identified in a video recording.
The accused persons are William Baah, the Assemblyman of Denkyira Obuasi, Bernard Asamoah alias Daddy, Kofi Nyarko aka Abortion, Akwasi Baah, Kwame Tuffour, Joseph Appiah Kubi, Micheal Anim and Bismarck Donkor.
Others are John Bosie, Akwasi Baah, Charles Kwaning, Emmanuel Badu, Bismarck Abanga and Kwadwo Anima.
