The Attorney General’s department is yet to
take a decision on the letter written by the 19-
year-old woman who accused media icon
Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) of rape.
The victim wrote to the court stating that she
was no longer interested in the case on
Tuesday.
This follows the referral of the said letter by
the Police to the Attorney General (AG) for
advice.
The alleged victim on Tuesday wrote a letter
to the court informing them of her decision to
discontinue the case citing, the “media frenzy”
which followed KKD’s arrest and the never-
ending buzz and social media posts as
reasons for her decision.
Subsequently, KKD issued a statement
apologized for “traumatizing the victim.”
Speaking to Citi News, the Public Relations
Officer of the Greater Accra Police Command,
ASP Effia Tenge confirmed that the Police
have “received the letter of not want of
prosecution from the victim in this case.”
She said the Police will for now wait for advice
from the AG on how to proceed with the case.
“As Police officers and prosecutors in this
case, we have forwarded the letter to the
Attorney General for advice so unless the
Attorney General advises on our next line of
action,” she explained.
ASP Tenge added that the Police can no
longer make further comments on the case
because “every case and its own merits, every
case and its own facts.”
According to her, the constitution stipulates
that the Attorney General shall be responsible
for the initiation and conduct of all
prosecutions of criminal offences therefore,
“we just have to forward it to the AG for
advice.”
