Ali-Gabass for court today

The medical doctor who allegedly sodomised a 16-year-old senior high school student will be put before court today. The mandatory 48-hour period within which the police can hold a suspect under investigation elapses today.
Therefore, investigators are mandated to arraign Dr Sulley Ali-Gabass by the close of work today.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mr J. B. Darkwa, told the Daily Graphic in Accra yesterday that the suspect was picked up on Wednesday for further investigations after Joy FM, a private radio station, had uncovered his act.
“We are continuing with investigations and it is likely we will send the suspect to court today, whether or not investigations are completed. We are enjoined by law to arraign suspects 48 hours after they have been picked up,” he added.
Meanwhile, three health bodies, including a regulator, have assured Ghanaians that they will not shield Dr Ali-Gabass from any legal process being pursued by mandated constitutional bodies in his alleged sodomy case.
A statement jointly signed by the President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr Kwabena Opoku-Adusei; the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Ebenezer Appiah-Denkyira; and the Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council (MDC), Dr Eli K. Atipui, and issued by the three bodies said the institutions would not only conduct thorough investigations into the allegation but also feed the public with the outcome of their investigations.
