610ffdc3f8bd82cb781ff35b8cc7fce3_LThe Chief Executive Officer of Kessben Group of Companies, Kwabena Kesse, has been set free.

This follows a decision by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice not to continue with the case of money laundering against the Kumasi-based business man.

When the case was called in court today (Wednesday), the prosecution told the court that they were withdrawing all the charges against Mr Kesse,

As a result, the court discharged him and struck out the case for want of prosecution.

The court ordered for his passport to be released to him. His passport had been deposited at the court’s registry as part of the bail conditions.

Mr Kesse was arrested by the Bureau of National Investigations on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 together with three officials of the Stanbic Bank for allegedly facilitating an illegal transfer of $127,931,727.65 out of Ghana to dubious locations within a period of 14 months.

He was first arraigned in court on Thursday July 31, 2014, but the Presiding Judge, Mr Francis Obiri, dismissed an application for bail on the basis that, if granted bail, the accused person was likely to interfere with police investigations.

On Thursday, August 7, 2014, Mr Kesse was granted bail in the sum of GH?350 million with four sureties, two to be justified.
