A Human Rights Court will this morning hear an application for bail filed by lawyers for ace broadcaster Kwesi Kyie Darkwa, popularly known as KKD, after being accused of raping a 19 year old lady, Ewuraffe Orleans Thompson.

KKD is currently in Police custody after a District court in Accra earlier refused to grant him bail.

His lawyers have resorted to a higher court to seek bail for him as according to them, the District court does not have the locus to grant their client bail over a case such as rape.

Speaking in an earlier interview with Citi News, one of the lawyers for KKD, Garry Nimako explained that, “We will go back to the District court for the main case but this court can’t grant him bail that is why we have begun filing processes at the Human Rights court for his bail.

KKD has maintained that he did not rape Ewuraffe Orleans Thompson, and that they had a “consensual” seksual intercourse.

In the bail application to the Human Rights court, KKD’s lawyers argued among others that, even though there were two other persons in the room during the alleged rape incident, the facts of the prosecutor do not state that “any one of them heard noise from the so-called victim.”

They also argued that the facts do not show “there was any physical or verbal threat of harm or physical restraint used to compel the victim to have seks with the accused, yet, the prosecution contends the use of force.”
