The 19-year-old girl who accused media icon, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) of rape has withdrawn the charges, sources at the Greater Police Command has told citifm.
The lady is said to have written to the court to withdraw the case.
It is unclear whether the prosecutor will subsequently drop all charges against KKD who has been in police custody since December 28, 2014 for allegedly raping Ewurefe Orleans Thompson.
The victim alleged that she was raped during a fashion show at the African Regent Hotel.
KKD denied raping her but admitted having consensual sex with the victim.
In his lawyer’s bail application, he argued that the facts do not show “there was any physical or verbal threat of harm or physical restraint used to compel the victim to have sex with the accused, yet, the prosecution contends the use of force.”
Meanwhile, the bail application hearing of KKD has been adjourned to Thursday January 15, 2015.
At the request of KKD’s counsel, Tony Folson, today’s[Tuesday] sitting was heard in camera but it is unclear why that request was made.
