Dr Kwabena Duffuor and eight others have pleaded not guilty to 71 new charges brought against them in the Unibank case.
The state amended the charge sheet by adding three new charges.
The former Central bank governor and the other persons were earlier hit with 68 charges but that was withdrawn today and replaced with new charges adding up to 71.
The accused persons all pleaded not guilty to the charges and 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 have prayed the court to give them ample time to peruse the voluminous documents filed by the state.
Meanwhile, the Commercial Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Jennifer Dadzie last week dismissed an injunction application filed by the Receiver appointed to liquidate uniBank to halt an arbitration hearing with the shareholders of the bank.
The court dismissed the Receiver’s application to injunct the parties from obeying the court’s order saying the parties should go for arbitration which the receiver himself had earlier opted for.
The Receiver appointed to liquidate Unibank in June last year filed an application in court to halt an arbitration hearing with shareholders of the bank.
The application filed by lawyers for the Receiver, Nii Amanor Dodoo of Accounting firm KPMG, was asking the court to also make a determination on the previous ruling which directed the case for arbitration.
The Receiver referred the matter to court after owners of uniBank sought to challenge the bank’s liquidation by Bank of Ghana.
