A circuit in the Greater Accra Region has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Mark Okraku Mantey, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture.

The Adentan circuit court issued the warrant for the Deputy Minister’s arrest for failing to appear before it.

The deputy minister has been charged for allegedly violating Sections 7 (1) and (2) of the Vigilantism and Related Offences Act.

The prosecution says he forcibly gained access to the land, owned by one Alhaji Tony Baba.

Okraku Mantey was to appear in court on January 18, 2022, to continue completion of the case management conference for the trial to commence, but failed. His lawyer was also absent, but he sought permission from the court.

Prosecuting, Superintendent of Police Patience Mario prayed the court for a bench warrant to effect the arrest of the accused person.

The court presided over by Sedinam Awo Balokah, issued the warrant, and adjourned the matter to 8 February 2022.
