Doctors treating Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) have recommended psychological counselling for the embattled fashion icon who is standing trial for rape.
This was after the ace broadcaster failed to show up in court for the second time running due to ill health.
His lawyers produced his medical report before the court to authenticate their claims of his poor state of health.
However, Starr News’ Wilberforce Asare who was in court Thursday, reports that the State prosecutor in-charge of the case, Cynthia Lamptey was furious over the fact that she was not given a copy of the medical report before today’s hearing.
The case has been adjourned to February 18,2015.
State prosecutors have accused KKD of forcibly having sex with Ewureffe Orleans Thompson in a hotel washroom, although he insists the act was consensual.
Even though the 19-year-old lady says she wants to discontinue the case, and the accused has also apologised to the lady publicly, state prosecutors are bent on seeking legal redress for the alleged crime.
Prosecutors had earlier questioned the authenticity of that letter purported to have been written by Ms. Thompson.
