Nurse granted bail after spending several days in detention


The Tamale high court has granted Mr. Ernest Green, a nurse who was accused of raping an Italian national on admission at the Damongo hospital, a bail of 100,000 Ghana cedis with one surety.

The presiding judge, Justice Osei Kwame Gyamfi, however, did not give a date for the next hearing because the case is being heard at district circuit court.

In his ruling,  Judge Kwame told the parked court room that, the prosecution failed to provide medical report on the case and also failed to listen to the accused person.
Both the accused and the plaintiff were not present in court today.

But present in large numbers were members of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwifes Association (GRNMA) who had gathered at the court to solidarize with their colleague and promised to provide support to the accused.

Addressing his colleagues at the Tamale high court, the national president of GRNMA, Dr Kwaku Asante Krobea told the media their colleague has been assigned a lawyer for his legal defense.

He commended the West Gonja district hospital health workers for not leaving their colleague to his fate.

He also apologized to nurses who were allegedly manhandled when they stormed the Damongo hospital to protest the arrest of their co-worker.
