The state has formally charged celebrity broadcaster, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) with rape even though the alleged 19-year-old victim has indicated she was no longer interested in pursuing the case.

The state is however yet to serve KKD with a summary of the evidence gathered.

This came to light when the case was called at the Magistrate Court in Accra Thursday morning. The case was subsequently adjourned to Thursday January 29, 2015 to enable the prosecutors serve KKD with a summary of the evidence and the bill of indictment for his lawyers to study it.

Graphic Online’s correspondent in court, Nana Konadu Agyeman reported that the prosecution asked for the case to be adjourned for one week when it was called Thursday morning.

After KKD is served, the case would move from the Magistrate Court to a higher court.

KKD was present in court.

The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court last week granted bail to KKD on humanitarian grounds after 19 days on remand.
