The Attorney General's Department have revealed that four fresh charges have been preferred against the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo and Deputy National Communications Officer, Kwaku Boahen.

The two are facing four charges, three for the National Chairman and one for Kweku Boahen.

"I am very optimistic that this case will be thrown out when it lands in court," he added.
