An Accra High Court has discharged three journalists charged with stealing and unauthorized access to electronic records.

This follows an application by Senior State Attorney Stella Ohene Appiah that the state is not interested in continuing with the case.

Modern Ghana Editor Emmanuel Adjarfo Abugri and journalist Emmanuel Britwum were arrested last week by operatives of the national security.

An Editor of Accra based Peace Fm, Emmanuel Obeng Manu was later picked up and charged for the same offenses.

The case which was filed Friday morning was surprisingly withdrawn by the state prosecutors.

The court presided by Justice Afia Asare Botwe discharged the three and struck out the case as withdrawn.

Lawyer for Emmanuel Adjarfo Samson Lardi Anyenini said this was a vindication of his strongly held position that his client was innocent of the crimes. Facebook Twitter
