Porter charged with possessing Indian hemp
February 01, 2010
Asamankese, Feb. 1, GNA - A circuit court at Asamankese has remanded into prison custody Emmanuel Kwasi Kadjaku, a porter, for illegally possessing dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp.

The accused, who pleaded not guilty, would re-appear at court on February 22.

Police Chief Inspector Ben Brew told the court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Siameh that on April 18, 2008, the Police at Asamankese had a tip-off that Kadjaku and five others were at the bank of River Abuchen distributing parcels of Indian hemp to peddlers.

Prosecution said the Police were able to arrest Kadjaku but the five others swam across the river and fled.

Chief Insp. Brew said the Police found a sack containing 18 parcels of dried leaves and another quantity of dried leaves all suspected to be Indian hemp.

He said an examination at the Police Forensic Laboratory confirmed that the dried leaves were Indian hemp.
