The Kaneshie District Court has granted bail to spokesperson for the New Force, Shalimar Abbiussi.
The lady, first seen in the group’s campaign video, is being charged with allegedly obtaining a student permit by false declaration.
Among others, the video highlighted the suffering of Ghanaians under the Akufo-Addo administration using recent demonstrations to question the role of leadership in addressing the concerns of the citizenry.
This morning, she was escorted to the court premises in the company of officers from the National Bureau of Investigations.
Ms Shalimar has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Some persons were spotted hoisting placards at the premises with the inscription ‘Justuce for Shallie’ among others.
Ms. Abbiusi’s arbitrary detention, per the New Forces’ December 7 press release, raises serious concerns about power abuse, persecution of perceived political opponents, and multiple human rights violations.
