Asamoah Gyan Under Fire | Top Lawyer Says ‘Arrest Asamoah Gyan’ Over Castro’s Death

Asamoah Gyan and Castro
Asamoah Gyan and Castro

While Janet’s parents are mounting pressure on a missing Castro to produce their daughter, a lawyer is saying Asamoah Gyan needs to be arrested to help in investigations because there are too many confusing explanations in Castro’s disappearance.

Dr Marice Ampaw a well known and respected lawyer is reported to have said on Metro Fm that;

“If Ghana were a serious nation, we wouldn’t have allowed marine police to go and have fun on the sea, with the intention of searching for Castro’s body. Then Asamoah Gyan also picked a boat saying he is going to search for Castro. This will not happen in a serious country. For Christ’s sake, Castro is a celebrity, a star, anybody who was involved should be arrested to enable the person write his statements”

“We are in A country where people do not know their rights and that’s why they are walking freely, I am therefore calling for the arrest of Asamoah Gyan and anybody who went with them to Ada, they should arrest them and give them ‘police enquiry bail’ for the investigations to be carried out”

What can I say? Though this may sound shocking and overly westernized, I have to agree. Not for Asamoah to be arrested but everyone present should have written statements at the police station even before investigations started. That’s how these issues are handled in developed countries.

Since the matter has to be investigated, it is simple procedure. And one may argue that it doesn’t make sense but truly, you and I were not there! It is only Asamoah and those who were present who know exactly what happened so they must be probed further.

Like the Lawyer said, there are many things that do not make sense in this situation and it is up to the police to get to the bottom of it.

  1. Simple! I cannot believe they didn’t already give statements. Why? It is normal to question everybody. What if he didn’t even drown? How will we know?

  2. I totally agree with you Dr Maurice Ampaw, who is thinking very logically-He is only trying to say what really happened ? who, where, how , which, when , was last to see them both alive. The police and navy have been looking and thinking in the wrong direction- there should have been an enquiry into the supposed drowning and one cannot conclude without evidence that they actually did drown. The party mix of friends were enjoying themselves that weekend who knows what really happened?? booze, recreational drugs, arguments, raised tempers, maybe :(- high spirits could all lead to accidental death or unintentional harm -it happens with celebs.

  3. This so called lawyer is a fool he should go and arrest asa himself,Asa wasn’t with Castro when he and Janet got drowned,what kind of stupid mentality is this so all the people present in Ada should be arrested??is this how you people run justice in Ghana?Castro death was an accident nobody pushed in the water,he was alone with Janet so why should the others be arrested for something they have no hand in ?this lawyer is just an attention seeker that is all so if i witness an accident i should be arrested for being there at the bad moment?where did he got his lawyer licence from?when a drama happens to a celebritie you will see all sort of vultures folking around.

    • Arame…your statement definitely implies you were there with Castro and Janet that Sunday. No one truly knows what took place….except their friends/acquaintances, and anyone at the Ada Estruary around that time.
      Arresting someone does not prove the individual is guilty. Arrests and summons are made to gather details and investigate what happened. The honest truth is if Castro for one reason or another happened to be your dear brother….i can only assume you would want to know as much details as you can possibly get surrounding the incident. Sounds reasonable?

      • My dear go and read law you don’t arrest somebody if you don’t have anything incriminating him,you should be found guilty of something before being arrested.If castro was my brother i will like to know the truth yes but not by jungle justice,give me one reason why Asamoah should be arrested was he the only one there,was he with castro when the incident happened?if he was the case i swear thing will have gotten out of hand by know because he will have been accused of killing castro,people would have talked so much hummmmmmmm.Law it’s Law and as a lawyer this man should know it you don’t arrest people like that we’re not in a movie,police should lead a proper investigation but arresting asamaoh means he’s guilty of castro’s death what is totally ridiculeous,this lawyer i repeat is just an attention seeker no serious lawyer dares make such a statement.

        • It seems Arame u dont know law well so go back n read it well cus all i know is that every one was with them at ada that moment is a crime Suspect so therefore must be arrested and their statement written bf they can be given bail.

      • They cant just arrest them like that.. That was in the 1990’s, now Ghana law is on a whole total grounds. He still needs to answer lots of questions before he leaves the country.

    • Arame, you must not insult to express your view.Go and learn some netiquette.Were you at Ada with the entire team? Take note that he called for the arrest of the entire team that went there(i.e. the last people that were seen with the two missing people), and be given “police enquiry bail”, if you claim you know law, find out what the phrase in quotation marks mean. Better still , you can read the link – http://www.communitylaw.org.nz/community-law-manual/chapter-27-police-powers/police-powers-of-arrest/ OR get the Ghana Criminal Code to learn circumstances under which an arrest is plausible.

      For your information this is a renowned Lawyer(versed in Criminal Law) that Ghana admires for his objective contribution on national issues. Go to the Ghana School of Law and University of Ghana to dig their archives and you will find he was an A+ student in his days at school.

  4. There should have been an investigation long time ago. I’m surprised no one has been questioned yet. By the way, I don’t support the lawyers call for Asamoah Gyan arrest. What has he done? Before anyone got arrested they must have been involved in a crime. What is Asamoah Gyan’s crime? On what basis should he get arrested? Maybe the lawyer wanted to say that baby jet should be invited to the police station for questioning.

  5. There’s something fishy about this whole thing. Hmmm the lawyer is a great one but Asamoah just cant be arrested without enough evidence. He still needs to answer questions tho.
