Kumasi gang-rape suspects to appeal at High Court

I understand everyone has the right to defend themselves to the max in any court case. But it is most irritating when the defendants try to swivel themselves out of the charges with mere technicalities.

Technicalities do not negate the realities that make up the case, and often their usage sets the guilty free at the expense of the victims and real Justice. When culprits are freed based upon technicalities, it makes the victims feel like they have been victimized all over again. And such double victimization, without Justice, is simply unacceptable.

I know the Lawyers might all be over me for making this observation. However, technicalities obscure the truth in cases, which we should aim for in every adjudication.

Long Live Ghana!!!
