Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) is not yet a free man as the Attorney General (AG) Department says it is yet to act on a letter written to it by the alleged rape victim for the case to be discontinued.
[contextly_sidebar id=”NNouehu95pA6h0oenMw4mdBqJreCjy86″] The 19-year old alleged raped victim wrote a letter to the court on her decision to discontinue the case citing the “media frenzy” which followed KKD’s arrest and the never-ending buzz and social media posts as reasons for her decision.
The letter was subsequently forwarded to the AG’s department.
According to senior state attorney at the AG’s department, Vivian Lamptey, though they have received the letter, there are a number of questions to be answered before a final decision is taken on the matter.
KKD subsequently issued a statement apologizing for “traumatizing the victim.”
Citi News’ Fred Djabanor who was in court stated that the “Chief state Attorney made it clear that her outfit had received the letter for the withdrawal of the case and that the Attorney General had not taken a decision on the issue yet”
“This is because they had to verify the authenticity of the letter and signature and also have some pressing questions answered before a decision as whether to continue the case or not court be taken,” he added.
Meanwhile an Accra Human Rights court has granted KKD bail with the sum of Gh¢20,000 with two sureties.
The bail according to court was on humanitarian grounds and KKD’s ill health.
