The case involving entertainment personality, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD), who has been accused of rape, has been adjourned to February 12.
The case was adjourned again after lawyers for the ace radio personality told the court at Thursday’s hearing that he has been admitted at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
It is unclear what KKD was admitted for but Joy News’ Anny Osabutey, who was in court Thursday, said counsel for the accused informed the court the broadcaster was given bed rest at the hospital after he was rushed there Wednesday.
The court had wanted to issue a bench warrant for KKD’s arrest after state persecutors faulted KKD’s counsel for not doing the right thing by informing the court in writing of his client’s condition.
However, according to Anny Osabutey, the goodwill of KKD’s lawyer, Tony Forson, saved the entertainment icon and the warrant was not issued.
The state is going ahead to prosecute KKD even though the alleged victim, 19-yar-old Ewuraffe Orleans Thompson has written to them declaring her disinterest in the case.
The Airport Police arrested KKD on December 27, 2014 after the 19-year-old accused him of raping her in a hotel washroom. The Human Rights Court in Accra granted the ace broadcaster bail on humanitarian grounds after 19 days in detention.
It was thought that in the wake of the lady’s letter, the prosecution may enter a nole prosequi and discontinue the case but the prosecution says it is pressing on.
The case returns to court on February 12, 2015.
