GBA will provide legal assistance to victims
Regional news for Thursday, June 2, 2022
The Ghana Bar Association (GBA) said the flogging of the two lovers, whose sex tape was leaked to Wa, is “degrading” and an attack on their person.
According to the GBA, it has instructed the Association’s Women’s and Juveniles’ Rights Committee to “closely monitor and provide necessary and required legal assistance to the unfortunate victims of this lawless and barbaric act”.
The association, which condemned the act, described it as “humiliating, dehumanizing, humiliating and degrading and amounting to a violation of their fundamental human rights and an attack on their person”.
He therefore called on “the relevant security agencies to arrest all those involved in the physical abuse of the two young people, to investigate the incident and to ensure that the perpetrators are prosecuted in accordance with the law”.
The lovers, a 22-year-old tricycle driver, and his 18-year-old girlfriend filmed their own leaked sex session.
Young people from the community dragged the lovers to the Wa Naa Palace on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, to denounce them.
However, the chef was unavailable when the two lovers were dragged to the palace.
The young people then decided to parade the lovers in front of the palace.
They then tied them to a pole and whipped them.
They received twenty lashes each.
