On Monday-December, 22, Kwaw Kese could not appear in court as scheduled because he was sick, his counsel told the court. His hearing was moved to the next day—and when he finally appeared on Tuesday, a bail request was for refused despite crying and begging.
This evening, Kwaw Kese was rushed to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital once again, complaining of stomach ache—and he is said to be currently responding to treatment under police watch.
Kwaw Kese was arrested in Kumasi for smoking weed with impunity, 20 metres away from a police barrier and what started as one of those arrests has become extensively serious.
Kwaw’s case was first heard by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court on Monday, 24th Nov, 2014. Reports already has it that the substance he smoked which the police caught him with and later tested, is actually weed but he is to appear before the court for the police to present their evidence before the court.
Ever since Kwaw Kese was remanded, he has been denied bail four times by the court – based on the law which states clearly that narcotic offences constitute non-bailable cases in law.
He will appear in court on January 5, 2014.
