Tagor and Issa Abbass sentenced to 15 years in jail

By myjoyonline

An Accra Fast Track High Court has convicted Alhaji Issa Abass and Kwabena Amaning alias Tagor to 15 years in jail with hard labour for drug related offences.

The court presided over by Justice Jones Dotse found Tagor guilty on two counts of conspiracy to commit crime and promoting narcotics. Alhaji Issa Abbass was also found guilty for conspiracy to commit crime and engaging in prohibited business related to narcotics.

The two convicts were whisked into a waiting prison van shortly after the judgment was pronounced in court.

Tagor and Issa Abass were first arrested in August 2006 when they appeared before the committee chaired by now Chief Justice Georgina Wood, investigating the disappearance of 77 parcels of cocaine on the shipping vessel MV Benjamin.
