The Accra Central District Court has discharged 13 persons alleged to have been involved in the lynching of Major Maxwell Mahama.

The 13 are part of the initial 32 suspects who have been charged with the murder of the Major.

The remaining 19 however, are still facing trial on charges of murder and conspiracy to murder.

The 13 individuals were discharged following a request by the prosecutor, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mr George Amegah .

According to him, the prosecution intends to use those discharged as witnesses in the case.

Fourteen persons, who are at large, have also been charged for the murder of the military officer.

At a hearing Thursday, lawyer for five of the accused persons, Mr George Bernard Shaw, prayed the court to impress on the prosecution to give a timetable on how it intends to proceed with the case.

The court adjourned the case to July 19, 2017 and remanded the 19 individuals into police custody
