I have always wondered how this case was ever prosecuted. It has now become clear to me – Kwaku Azar

Today, April 22, 2021 the famous legal professor, Stephen Kwaku Asare, popularly known as Prof Kwaku Azar, has accused Child Rights Organisation for committing a second degree felony.

According to Professor Kwaku Azar, the demand of GH200,000 from the contentious actress, Rosemond Brown, by Child Rights Organisation in order to invest on behalf of her son or face trail at court can be classified as extortion. 

“To extort is to obtain any property from any person by means of threat. Threat here does not include a threat of assault or harm to the person threatened. If harm is threatened it becomes a robbery.

A good example of a threat will be to say to a mother I will file a criminal complaint against you unless you give me ₵200,000 to invest on behalf of your son to be turned to him when he is 18”, he said. 

Moreover, Professor Kwaku Azar asserted in a Facebook post that the Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Odame, should abrogate the case on the basis of illegitimate machination against the respondent.  

“A prosecution that is triggered by an extortionist must not stand. I have always wondered how this case was ever prosecuted. It has now become clear to me. The Attorney-General must intervene to withdraw this case”, he said. 

He wrote this on his Facebook page today.
