Dr.Sulley Ali Gabass, the senior medical officer at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi standing trial for allegedly sodomising a 16-year-old Senior High School student, was absent in court yesterday.

Interestingly, the victim at the centre of the controversy was also not in court to continue with his cross examination by the lawyers for the accused.

In the case of Dr Gabass, it was alleged that his lawyers had submitted a medical form to the effect that he (Dr Gabass) was not feeling well and as such had been sent to the hospital for medical attention.

The trial judge, Mrs Rita Agyemang Budu, as a result adjourned the case to January 21, 2014 in another in camera hearing.

When the accused person is well his lawyers are expected to continue the cross examination of the victim.

The court has been hearing, among other things, how the victim and the suspect became friends on facebook, a social media platform, and how eventually the victim was allegedly sodomised by the accused.

It may be recalled that the cross examination of the victim was stalled on December 1, 2014 when prosecution submitted a medical form of the victim from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital signed by one Dr Mensa Amoah requesting that the victim be excused from duty for a week.

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.
