.An Accra Central District
court on Wednesday discharged 13 suspects allegedly involved in the murder of
Major Maxwell Mahama in Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region.

The 13 were part of an initial 32 who were
charged with murder at the last sitting.

When the case was called on Thursday, the
prosecution, led by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George Amegah prayed
the court to discharge all accused persons, because further investigations have
led them to charge 19 out of the 32.

He said some of them would be used by the
prosecution as witnesses since they would be useful to the police and have been
forth coming with information that has enhanced the investigations.

The rest of the 19 suspects which include one
woman are now going to stand trial on charges of, conspiracy to commit crime to
wit murder and murder.

The prosecution also told the court that 13
other suspects are currently at large.

The court then discharged the 13 based on the
prosecution’s request.

Earlier, the prosecution informed the court
that police investigations have revealed that, suspect Bernard Asamoah was not
truthful to the court at the last sitting when he claimed to be 17 years.

DSP Amegah said the police went to the Circuit
Education Office in Upper Denkyira, where his date of birth on his BECE
certificate, indicated that he was born on April 1, 1995.

He said by that, the suspect is 22 years and
not 17 as he told the court, adding that, his age was also confirmed by his
father as 22.

The court adjourned the matter to July 19.
