Shatta Wale must challenge his rejected bail at High Court- Lawyer
Human Rights Lawyer Francis Sosu has proposed to legal counsel for Shatta Wale and three others to challenge their rejected bail application at the High Court.
This was after the Circuit Court remanded the Dancehall Artiste Shatta Wale and others into prison custody for five days regarding the shooting trick case after they argued not liable.
Talking on the matter monitored by African Editors on Friday, Francis Xavier Sosu blamed the police for scheming with the court to use the bail application as a discipline measure for suspects.
The Madina MP said there is no much gainful sense for remanding a suspect into prison care after 48 hours in the name of investigations.
“It is actually the case that it isn’t programmed that you are granted bail, you are granted bail on the grounds that you are able to demonstrate that you have a long-lasting spot of habitation, you have autonomous guarantees who are of adequate means and that, when you are granted bail, you won’t interfere withith investigations et cetera.
“However, the majority of these issues truly, they are not intricate matters so for what reason would it take police more than 48hrs… .more than in some cases multi week… when they have not finished their investigations. It isn’t useful for common freedoms or insurance of common freedoms.”
Finishing up, he noticed that “I figure they ought to do the needful; apply to the high court, ideally, they would be granted bail at the High Court.”
Apart from Shatta Wale and others in prison custody, Ghanaian Rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong popularly known as Medikal has also been caged at prison custody all at Ankaful
