The Human Rights Court on Thursday granted  Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mrs Gifty Mawuenyaga Tehoda a GH¢50,000 bail with two sureties to be justified.

The court noted that the respondents failed to show cause as to why she was being kept in custody.

DSP Tehoda, who is Deputy Commander of Commercial Crime Unit at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters, had been detained by the BNI for alleged suspicious dealings with Nana Ama Martins, who was at the centre of the recent cocaine-turned-sodium bicarbonate saga.

She was picked up on December 29, 2011, after investigators from the BNI established suspicious dealings between her and Nana Martins,  and had since been in the custody of the BNI.

An exparte motion on a writ of Habeas Corpus was filed against the BNI and the Attorney General to produce the body of the Senior Police officer in court and show cause as to why she was being detained. Consequently, she was put before court on Wednesday.

The court, however, noted   that said she had not been charged with any offence and based on that the court admitted her to bail in fulfilment of Article 14 (4) of the 1992 Constitution.
