A former Attorney General under the erstwhile John Mahama administration has promised to ensure that justice is served to the 19-year-old girl allegedly raped by her Lebanese boss.

Marietta Brew-Appiah Oppong told Accra-based Joy FM that investigations can be done properly since the case got an immediate response.

“Very often by the time you become aware of a situation like this, the time has elapsed and evidence is lost and it becomes very difficult to follow up on it. That is why we are very keen on following up on this one to make sure the proper investigation and prosecution is done,” she said.

Police in East Legon arrested a Lebanese national for allegedly raping his 19-year-old house help at Airport Hills residential area in Accra.
