[Major Vincent Sowa] told journalists that the prosecution was in court because somebody gave the wrong advice although he declined to name the source of the advice.

“Although we relied on the facts given by the police, we ought to have taken the decision that the accused persons had no case to answer,” Sowa expressed dismay.
