A fashion designer, Richard Isaac Dankyi, is standing trial for allegedly having anal sex with three children, two males and a female.

The 29-year-old suspect, an uncle to the victims, aged between six and eight years, pleaded not guilty to six counts of defilement when he appeared before an Accra Circuit court.

The presiding judge Mrs Marian Affoah, therefore admitted Dankyi to bail in the sum of GH¢10,000 with four sureties.

The case investigator was asked to verify the residential and occupational addresses of all the four sureties and ensure that they are of substantial means sufficient to post bail for the accused person.

The matter has been adjourned to April 29. 

Background

According to the prosecutor, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Adolphine Dzansi, the complainant was a businessman residing at Ablekumah and he was the father of the victims.

The victims were however living with their mother at Teshie, but come over to their uncle's, that is the accused person, when their mother leaves town.

The prosecutor said that between last year and this year, Dankyi made the victims strip naked, laid them on his bed and had anal sex with them in turns.

Dankyi sometimes had anal sex with one of the male victims in the bathroom, the prosecutor added.

On April 10, this year, Dankyi had bouts of anal sex with the children again.

However, on April 15, after going for the children from their mother for Easter holidays, Dankyi realised that the female child was not able to walk properly.

The two other male victims subsequently narrated the ordeal they had gone through in the hands of the accused person when questioned by a witness in the case.

The female victim was sent to the Rinant Hospital at East Legon where the medical officer confirmed that she had been defiled.

The case was reported to the Police at East Legon where an extract of occurrence was prepared and forwarded to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit, Accra for further investigations.

Police also gave the complainant a Police medical form to send the three victims to the hospital.

Dankyi was subsequently arrested.
