A spokesperson for the New Force political movement, Shalimar Abbiusi is facing a rollercoaster of legal troubles, including a sudden re-arrest, by the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS).
Last week, Abbiusi, a Belgian National, was arraigned on accusations of presenting false documents claiming to be a student at the Ghana Christian University College to secure a residence permit.
Despite being granted bail amounting to GHC 20,000, the case took an unexpected turn when immigration prosecutors, led by ACI Adolf Aboagye Asenso, declared in court that they were instructed to withdraw the charges.
The accused was then discharged, and the case struck out as withdrawn. However, as Abbiusi left the courtroom, she was swiftly re-arrested by an immigration van, sparking accusations of a plot to deport her. In a video posted by Accra-based Joy News, she was seen being led into a van despite resistance by her lawyers and family members.
