The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu, has questioned what went into the ruling of the case involving eight persons who invaded the KMA Circuit Court in Kumasi.

The persons were accused of causing commotion and aided 13 members of the Delta Force, a political vigilante group to escape from lawful custody.

In Asantehene's opinion, the sentence of the eight persons which included fines, smacks of injustice, considering the gravity of the offence and punishment meted out to the people with relatively less severe offences.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu, raised these concern in Kumasi at the opening of this year's Chief Justice's Forum. He asked judges to always consider the larger interest of society and not limit judgement to their opinions.
