“These are students of KNUST who have been accused of rape,” Richard Adu Darko, lawyer for the accused persons said. “Looking at the facts that have been presented to us, honestly we don’t see rape, but that’s what we have been accused of.”

 

“And once someone is accused, the law says that, that person is innocent until proven guilty or the person pleads otherwise.”

He added: “So, now until they plead that they are guilty or until a court of competent jurisdiction finds them guilty they are innocent. At this material moment this is a court of first instance, and they have been brought here for purposes of remanding them in lawful custody.

“So, we are also going to take steps and go to the appropriate forum and then apply for bail for them, then they can continue with their examinations and face trial while the matter is pending before court.”
