The libel case brought by Kojo Tsikata, Ghana's head of national security, against the Independent newspaper ended yesterday. There will be a ruling in the next two weeks on whether Mr Tsikata was libelled in a report that an inquiry had found he 'masterminded' the murder of three of the country's high court judges but was never prosecuted. The story did not mention that the Ghanaian attorney-general later ruled that there was not enough evidence to justify prosecution.
