KKD’s ‘rape’ victim didn't write her letter – State Prosecutor doubts

Thursday, 15 January 2015 19:09

At the hearing of the bail application for ace broadcaster, Kwasi Kyei Darkwa on January 15, 2015, State Prosecutors raised red flags over what they suspect to have a letter written by the alleged victim of the accused, Ewurrefe Orleans Thompson.

At the Human Rights court where the bail was granted, Cynthia Lamptey representing the Attorney General argued that there are speculations that the letter supposedly written by the alleged rape victim to the Police Service copied to the Public Prosecutor at the Attorney General’s office is likely not to have been written by her.

Ewureffe in her letter stated that she was no longer interested in the case following the "media frenzy" and social media buzz the case has generated. Based on the above reasons she is no longer interested in the continuation of the case asking for a withdrawal.

The state prosecutor questioned the validity of the letter and said more needs to be done to authenticate whether or not it was Ewurrefe Orleans Thompson who wrote it.

She raised these concerns after lawyer for Kwasi Kyei Darkwa, Tony Forson mentioned the lady’s letter in his argument as part of reasons why his client should be granted bail.

KKD’s lawyer also argued on health grounds adding that the broadcaster needed consistent medical attention and must be granted bail to make this possible.

State Prosecutor, Cynthia Lamptey raised a counter argument praying the court to disregard the health grounds being used as a reason to plead for pardon. She said those arguments were not cogent enough to warrant a bail from the court.
