Violence In Court Woman Denied Access To Child Because Of Violent Attitude

A 32-year-old woman has been denied access to her child following her violent behaviour displayed in court.

  • Published:

A 32-year-old woman, Ms Sylvia Serwaa Okyere, has been denied access to her two and a half-year-old son following her violent behaviour in court.

The mother abandoned the child when he was barely four months old in search of greener pastures in the United States of America.

Upon her return, Ms Okyere is said to have demanded access to her son who was living with the father, Sampson Acquah but her request was denied.

Court action
After several failed attempts to forcibly have access to the child, Ms Okyere filed a case at the Family and Juvenile Court in Accra against her husband for the custody of the son.

Contrary to Ms Okyere’s expectation, the presiding judge, Mrs Victoria Ghansah, in her ruling, granted custody of the child to the father, Mr Acquah.

The judge, however, ruled that she should have access to the child anytime she was in town.

Immediately after the judgement, Ms Okyere in open court, verbally attacked Mr Acquah and the Probation Officer who had conducted the Social Enquiry Report that informed the court’s decision.

The judge, who did not take kindly to the violent reaction of Ms Okyere, consequently withdrew the opportunity she had earlier granted her due to her “non-compliance with the custody order and her unacceptable behaviour in court.”

Police misconduct
Meanwhile, the Asamankese District Police Commander, Superintendent Anane Appiah, has also been dragged before the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards (PIPS) Bureau for unprofessional conduct.

He was alleged to have manhandled Madam Florence Oduro Tanoah, a 54-year-old trader and mother-in-law of Ms Okyere and a resident of Asamankese.

Madam Tanoah was allegedly reported to the police at Asamankese by Ms Okyere  where the commander asked her to hand over the child to him. When she refused, Mr Acquah claimed the commander forcefully took the child, beat up his mother and locked her up.

According to Mr Acquah, he reported the matter to the PIPS in Accra where the Asamankese police were ordered to release the mother.

When the Daily Graphic contacted the Director-General of the PIPS, Commissioner of Police (COP) Madam Joana Osei-Poku, she confirmed the story but refused to give details.
