The three persons who were jailed for four months following death threats on judges have walked out of jail into the arms teaming crowds of NDC supporters.
The three, Safifu Maase, the host, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn were released after President John Mahama granted a remission of their sentences.
The three, accompanied by their lawyers were at the premises of Radio Gold – the station which spearheaded a petition for their release.
Counsel for the three, George Loh said although they are excited about the release, issues that led to their conviction should not be taken for granted.
He said managers of the radio station – Montie FM on which the contemptuous comments were made – will ensure strict adherence to rules from now on.
“The release does not mean we will continue to tolerate the use of improper language on the station. Lessons have been learnt,” he stressed.
At the rally, three were doused with white powder to celebrate their release.
