The four, Ruth Drovi, Calvin Esseka, Prince Nketiah and Hawa pleaded guilty to the charge and were sentenced to a fine of 40 penalty units each or in default three months imprisonment.

Counsel for the accused persons lawyer Peter Wahib Khalib however pleaded with the court to be lenient with his clients since they are first offenders and pledged to ensure that his clients comply with the existing noise regulations.

Prosecuting, Bernice Ofori Nyarko, the Environmental Health Prosecutor told the Court that the accused persons operate pubs in a residential area at Shalom Estate junction along the Pantang Hospital road.

According to her, these pubs make loud noise to the annoyance and disturbance of persons who live in the neighbourhood.
