Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

65 year-old American defiles seven children

A 65-year-old American accused of defiling seven minors has been remanded in prison custody by the Tema Circuit Court ‘A’.

The accused, Patrick Kent Labash, who pleaded not guilty to one count of having unnatural canal knowledge and seven counts of defiling the victims, would re-appear in court on September 22, 2009.

According to the prosecution, the Regional Director of the Department of Women and Children’s Affairs, Accra Secretariat, is the complainant in the case.

The prosecutor, Police Chief Inspector Matilda Tetteh said on August 25, this year, the complainant held a sensitization programme on the Domestic Violence Act (Act 732) at Adjomanikope, where the accused person resides.

She said during the programme, information reached the complainant that Labash has been luring children, both boys and girls between ages 3 and 12 years with food, candies and movies into his room and defiling them.

As the prosecution narrated, Labash would make his victims suck his erected manhood, discharge semen into their mouths and force them to swallow it while recording it on video.

Chief Inspector Tetteh, further, explained that Labash was arrested at a residence numbering ADJ 118 at Adjomanikope on August 29, 2009 after the complainant had reported the matter to the Tema Regional Police Command.

According to her, the police found and seized a computer, a cell phone, a pen drive, a digital camera and other recording gadgets containing pornographic materials of Labash and the victims during a search at his house.

The prosecution showed printed copies of pornographic materials to the presiding judge, Mrs. Lorinda Owusu.

Chief Inspector Tetteh noted, however, that Labash has denied the accusation but the victims have all confirmed and narrated their ordeal to the Police.
