Court clears Tsikata: justice has been found in the court- Tsatsu Tsikata
Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata has been acquitted and discharged by the Court of Appeal for causing financial loss to the state.
The New Democratic Congress (NDC) lawyer was jailed in 2008 for causing financial lost to the state.
The court said there was a miscarriage of justice when an Accra Fast Track High Court on June 18.2008, found him guilty on three counts of wilfully causing financial loss of GH¢230,000 to the state and another count of misapplying public property.
Despite receiving a presidential pardon in 2008, the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has been stressing his innocence and filed an appeal on June 30, 2016.
Expressing delight at the over-turned veridct, Tsikata quoted Psalm 94:5 and emphasised that indeed “justice has been found in the court”.
