The case involving entertainment personality, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD), who has been accused of rape, has been adjourned to February 5.
According to Joy News’ Anny Osabutey, who was in court Thursday, the case was adjourned after defence attorneys and state prosecutors asked for time to study the bill of indictment.
The court accepted their request and adjourned the case to February 5.
The state, after last week’s hearing, indicated that it will go ahead with the prosecution of KKD, for rape.
According to the state prosecutors, they will 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 with the case.
But ACP Atimbila told Anny Osabutey that the state intends to press on despite the girl’s declaration that she will no longer cooperate with prosecutors.
