Court documents have revealed that the charges against Francis Agyapong who was reported to have taken part in a fraudulent deal has bee struck out for want of procesution.
In 2014, six people were arrested for allegedly orchestrating a ‘419 scam’ to dupe hundreds of Ghanaians of thousands of Ghana cedis.
The names of the six suspects were given by the Sowutuom Police as Francis Atta-Agyapong Junior, the Director of Operations of the company; Mawuli Agbota, an accounts officer; Samuel Nyamekye, an administrative assistant; Robert Atsrim, the Assistant Director of Operations; Patrick Quansah, a network engineer, and Solomon Lamptey, an operations officer.
The suspects are linked to the Mass Social Welfare Scheme, an organisation which claims to be engaged in a social intervention project targeted at alleviating poverty among five million Ghanaians.
But the circuit court in its ruling said ” the case has been adjourned on several occasions for prosecution to call his witnesses but prosecution witness has been severally absent. Case struck out for want of prosecution.”
