KKD granted bail

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Human Rights Court in Accra has granted ace broadcaster, Kwasi

Kyei Darkwah bail on humanitarian grounds.

KKD, as he is popularly called, is standing trial for allegedly raping

a 19-year-old lady, Ewureffe Orleans Thompson.

Bail bond was set at 20,000 cedis with two sureties to be justified.

Joy News' Anny Osabutey reported that the state opposed the bail

application citing a 1970 case.

But the presiding judge rejected the argument, saying the case was

decided at a difficult time in the nation's political history.

He said he will not allow a man's freedom to be unjustifiably

curtailed merely on the basis of a 1970 case.
