According to a highly experienced Ghanaian solicitor, Josephine Panyin Mensah, the woman at the centre of the infamous Takoradi kidnapping case cannot be prosecuted because there’s no legal basis for her to be incriminated.
The lawyer told Connect FM in an interview that even if she faked her kidnapping or the pregnancy, she cannot be prosecuted for no apparent reason.
“There is no law that can incriminate the current controversial suspected Takoradi kidnapped pregnant woman if she faked,” the solicitor contended.
Explaining himself further, he said Josephine can only be prosecuted if it’s proven beyond reasonable doubt that she aided in her supposed kidnapping.
“The woman will have herself to be blamed if it turns out that she conspired in her kidnap. The issue will be treated holistically as someone who aided in a kidnap,” stressed lawyer Buckman.
