The battle is ended and Hon Eric Amoateng
, the beloved Ex MP for Nkoranza North Constituency has replaced his
"NOT GUILTY" plea with a "GUILTY" plea to charges of conspiracy to import heroine into America.
Sentencing has been scheduled for 3pm on June 6, 2007.The Presiding Magistrate Judge Roanne L. Mann in accepting Amoateng's plea observed that "pursuant to Federal Rule LL of the criminal procedure, a finding has been made that the plea was made knowingly and voluntarily."Hon Amoateng
counsel on March 19, 2007 signed document before the court in which the defendant told the court that after "fully discussing the matter with my counsel" he
has decided to enter a plea of GUILTY. Exactly five months ago, Hon Amoateng in a statement issued through his Attorney Dennis Adjei Brenya of New Hampstead, New York said, "I affirm before my nation that the allegations against me are false.
In the said statement, Hon Amoateng
accused the media of "unfairly trying and convicting me without the benefit of the facts underlying the case.Our own constitution demand that I should be presumed innocent."Amoateng
and one Nii Adjei were arrested on November 12, 2005 for concealing heroine in pottery and hiding it in a storage facility in Stan Island.

has drag the case to this time.One thing he
shouldnt forget is he's
dealing with whites and not blacks.
Its a pitty, but all the same i say to the family of Hon. Amoateng
to have a kind heart and pray for his
has disgrace NPP
Amoateng shd have admited the charges against him earlier rather than waiting all this while.He
has really disgrace this government.He
shd pray for forgiveness.
if this man were to admit earlier and ask God for forgiveness, he
would have been exonerated. we people in Ghana, thought he
has no problem hence , we were not praying for him. next time, any NPP guys in this problem should tell the truth early.
needs Jesus!Pray to God to WHAT again!?Veeeeery funny
is from the narcotics popular party(npp) and his
plea has come as a suprise in that his
mentors came out to tell ghanaians that h was innocent and continued using the resources of ghanaians to pay him.Can we also charge him here after his
sentence for deceiving ghanaians or we charge his
mentors who deceived as and still owe ghanaians an appology for such untruthgful defence of a quilty man
