The 13 members of the Delta Force facing trial for allegedly assaulting a public officer have been slapped with a new charge.
Prosecutor ACP Okyere Darko told the KMA Circuit Court Tuesday morning that the Attorney General has asked them to withdraw earlier charges of assaulting a public officer, conspiracy to assault, and causing unlawful damage.
He again told the court that the suspects are to be charged for rioting per the AG’s advice.
The accused persons have therefore been re-arrested on the new charge to be trialed in a district court.
