A popular Takoradi-based solicitor has taken the bull by the horns by stating categorically that the laws of Ghana has no point to convict or fine the presumed kidnapped Takoradi pregnant woman as circulating on social media, Josephine Panyin Mensah.
The solicitor who goes by the name Fiifi Buckman says even though the victim in question faked her kidnapping or the pregnancy, she cannot in any way be convicted for no culpable reason.
Granting interview to host Paa Kwesi Simpson on Friday, September 24 on Omanbapa, the morning show on Connect FM, Mr. Buckman said that although Josephine Panyin Mensah is presumed to possess faked her nine-month pregnancy and kidnapping, the law cannot take her on.

“There is not any law which will incriminate the present controversial suspected Takoradi kidnapped pregnant woman if she faked,” the solicitor contended.
The lawyer also explained that police cannot be sued over this issue of them saying the pregnancy is fake albeit it seems to be true because they are working with information available to them from a doctor.
Lawyer Buckman also said Josephine will only be made to face the complete rigours of the law if it's proven beyond reasonable doubt that she conspired in her kidnapping.
“The woman will have herself to be blamed if it seems that she conspired in her kidnap. the difficulty are going to be treated holistically as someone who aided during a kidnap,” stressed lawyer Buckman.
