Shalimar Abbiusi, spokesperson for the New Force political movement, has been re-arrested following the withdrawal of charges related to obtaining a student permit with false declarations. Abbiusi, a Belgian National, had been arraigned last week on allegations of presenting false documents claiming enrollment at Ghana Christian University College to obtain a residence permit.
The case, initially set for a full trial on Tuesday, took an unexpected turn when prosecutors from the immigration service, led by ACI Adolf Aboagye Asenso, revealed in court that they had instructions to withdraw the charges. Consequently, the accused was discharged, and the case was officially struck out.
However, shortly after leaving the courtroom, Abbiusi was apprehended by an immigration van. Citi News sources within the prosecution indicated that the re-arrest occurred despite the decision to withdraw the case. The move has raised concerns, with Abbiusi's legal team, led by Francis Xavier Sosu, accusing the immigration service of orchestrating a plot to deport the accused.
The circumstances surrounding the re-arrest of Shalimar Abbiusi remain unclear, and the development has sparked questions about the legal proceedings and the motivations behind the actions taken by the immigration service. Abbiusi's legal representatives are expected to challenge the re-arrest, emphasizing concerns about due process and the rights of the accused. The situation adds complexity to the already contentious case and may lead to further legal battles in the coming days
