Former Bank of Ghana Governor Dr Kwabena Duffuor has pleaded not guilty to some 71 charges filed against him by the state.
The new charges against him and eight others comes after the state dropped some 68 charges against Dr Duffuor on Thursday, 18 June 2020 to press fresh ones against him for the collapse of uniBank and his alleged involvement in the financial crisis.
Apart from Dr Duffuor, the others also pleaded not guilty.
They were admitted to the same bail conditions as earlier granted by the court.
The court presided over by Justice Bright Mensah, adjourned the matter to July 16 and 17, for Case Management Conference.
This was after the defence lawyers had prayed the court to give them ample time to peruse the voluminous documents filed by the state.
Dr Duffuor was the owner of uniBank. The bank was among other banks that were merged by the Bank of Ghana to birth the Consolidated Bank Ghana.
According to BoG, uniBank was not solvent.
