The Ghana Medical Association has expressed worry over the recent news reports about one Joshua Drah at Madina, who claimed to be a medical practitioner who allegedly raped his clients that came to him for abortion services.
This was contained in a release issued and signed by the General Secretary, Dr Frank Serebour, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Friday.
It said: “Indeed, the Ghana Medical Association will like to state emphatically that the said Joshua Drah, according to our records, is not a Medical Doctor and that his actions should not be used to drag the name of doctors into disrepute.”
This was revealed by the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The release noted that the Ghana Medical Association would like to admonish the public to be circumspect in their dealings with individuals who posed as medical doctors and should immediately report all suspicious individuals to the security agencies for appropriate actions to be taken.
“Moreover, the judicial system should give stiffer punishment to such unscrupulous individuals to deter others from treading the same course,” it added.
