The Human Rights Reporters Ghana (HRRG), a vibrant media advocacy cum human rights non-governmental organization has charged the Ghana Police Service to endeavour and ensure that those miscreants who committed the atrocious act of flogging the two lovers in Wa are meant to face the full rigours of the law at all cost.
This follows media reports confirming the severe severely flogging of two lovers by some irate youth at the forecourt of Wa Naa’s palace in Wa in the Upper West Region after their sex tape was leaked on social media.
The heart-breaking news has since received an outburst of public outcry and wide condemnation with multitudes calling for justice to be served to the victims and the perpetrators brought to book.
The Human Rights Reporters Ghana is the latest to add its voice to calls for the perpetrators to be dealt with according to law to serve as a deterrent to others while justice is served to the victims to ensure peace prevails.
In a statement dated June 3 signed by its Executive Director, Joseph Wemakor, and copied to the press, the group said, “We applaud the Ghana Police Service in their swift response in effecting some arrests and hope the perpetrators are made to face the full rigors of the law, as a testament to the fact that Ghana is governed by the rule of law where no custom, by-law or religious rule supersedes that of the state”.
