Oliver finally released from police custody 24hrs after granted bail

Convenor of the #FixTheCountry movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, has been released from police custody after meeting his bail conditions.

Oliver was arrested on February 11, 2022, over claims that he had threatened to cause a coup if the government went ahead to pass the controversial Electronic Transaction Levy.

The Tema High Court granted Mr. Barker-Vormawor bail in the sum of GHS 2 million with two sureties.

He had to spend another night in police custody due to some challenges regarding his bail conditions.

Mr. Barker-Vormawor in his application for bail had contested claims of threatening a coup, saying a charge of treason felony against him cannot be sustained by the evidence available.

This is notwithstanding that the Attorney-General in an affidavit in opposition to the bail, insisted that evidence uncovered so far corroborates a charge of treason felony against the activist.

Mr. Barker-Vormawor, however, wondered why the Republic had not charged him or taken a statement from him on the charge.
