The judge had placed the post-no-debit on the accounts on the 24 accounts on June 23, following an ex parte motion by the prosecution.
 
But Akor and the group, through a motion filed on July 5, 2017, challenged the order made by the court, accusing the prosecution of “suppressing and misrepresenting facts” in the ex parte motion through which the prosecution obtained the order.
 
Justice Tsoho held in his ruling on Tuesday that the prosecution fail to controvert the allegation by the applicants.
