The surety who stood for Helena Huang’s bail, Mohammed Bondirgbum, has been granted a GH₵3,000 bail after he failed to produce her.
Mohammed, a freelance journalist, was granted the surety bail by the Tamale Circuit Court presided over by Justice Twumasi.
He pleaded with the judge to allow him a month to produce the suspect but the court declined his request and granted him bail with two sureties who are government workers earning Gh¢3,000 each or landed property worth about Gh¢130,000.
The court further ordered the police investigator to offload the rosewood and take the two trucks to the court premises.
The case has been adjourned to May 22, 2019.
