Have you ever wondered that, persons needing legal assistance cannot find one? Especially when their victim, once suffered from a potentially political attack, resulting in the death of their loved ne?
Well, that us the exact situation that the family of Kaaka are facing. According to the Convener of the #FixTheCountry campaign, Barker H Vogues has shared this deep detail on his Facebook post. He wrote that:
"For the past two weeks, I have been assisting the Kaaka family try to help them find a lawyer in Kumasi for the family to represent their brother who has been arrested. We have spoken to nearly 10 lawyers. Almost all of them have refused to take the case up because of fear of political reprisals.
I am putting this out there, because I am hoping that members of the Profession take this Appeal. Not because I am interested in criticizing the profession. People have a right to be worried about their personality safety. This is a humanitarian appeal.
Because, we Lawyers have an ethical responsibility here. Our « Hippocratic » is that every human being, irrespective of the crime they have been accused; deserve legal representation. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. reach out if you can help! Shalom!"
