Doctor Testifies In Sodomy Trial

Dr. Nii Aryeh, a surgeon at the Korle-Bu Hospital, yesterday took his turn to testify in the sodomy trial of Dr Sulley Ali Gabass, the senior medical officer of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi.

The appearance of Dr Aryeh brings to four the number of witnesses the prosecution has led to testify in the case.

Although the evidence of the surgeon was taken in the chamber of the trial judge, Mrs Rita Agyemang Budu, DAILY GUIDE has gathered that the doctor completed giving his evidence.

He is, however, expected to be cross examined by the defence counsel on Friday, March 20, 2015.

The Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital senior medical officer is before the court for allegedly sodomising a 16-year-old senior high school student.

Dr Ali Gabass has been in custody over a two count charge of defiling a child under 16 years and unnatural carnal knowledge, an offence he has denied.

He is alleged to have in the months of October 2013 and April 2014 at Kasoa and Alajo respectively had unnatural carnal knowledge of the victim aged 16.

According to the police, during the month of October 2013, Dr Gabass arranged and met the victim at Kasoa New Market Area where he forcibly had anal sex with the victim in his car in front of the Kasoa HFC Bank.

During police interrogation, Dr Gabass admitted knowing the victim as a friend, but denied having anal sex with him.
