Ejisu (Ash), Aug 3, GNA - A Magistrate Court at Ejisu has sentenced a 30-year-old mason to two years imprisonment for conspiracy and stealing a corn mill motor valued at 1.5 million cedis belonging to the Catholic Church at Donyina. Kwaku Paul pleaded guilty but his accomplice, a 30-year-old farmer, Kwabena Boateng, pleaded not guilty and was remanded to re-appear on August 15 while Atta Kwabena, the third accused person, was on the run.
