The entire membership of the Mensah Sarbah Hall JCR expresses its joy over the discharge of our innocent colleagues who were paraded before court to be prosecuted for the alleged molestation of one Amina Haruna, a statement from the JCR president, Edward Tuttor said.
“Right from the onset we were of the opinion that our colleagues were innocent and the police did not follow due process to arrive at the alleged suspects,” he pointed out.
“This recklessness has rendered innocent students who were not even on campus on the day of the alleged molestation arraigned before court for prosecution.”
It’s also immeasurably melancholic when some media Houses such as the Daily Guide newspaper went about misinforming the world that “four students were on the run and they even relented from writing their semester exams because they were actively involved in the molestation and therefore had to flee from the law”.
The JCR said it will like to “put on record that no student has been on the run because no one is guilty of any offense.
Secondly, no student committed the alleged act of molestation on Miss Amina Haruna.
This is a point worth making.”
“We the Vikings therefore call on the Vice – Chancellor, Mr.
Ernest Aryeetey - the chief disciplinary officer of the University of Ghana to reinstate our colleagues who were sanctioned by the University.
“Our plea is premised on the fact that our colleagues are innocent and even more the prosecutor has not been able to make a case against them.”
