Lawyers for embattled media and entertainment guru, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa popularly known as KKD, have filed a bail application at the Human Rights Courts in Accra for their client.

KKD is in Police custody and expected to be there until January 8, 2015 after he was charged with rape by a 19-year-old, Ewuraeffe Orleans Thompson.On Tuesday, an Accra Magistrate court denied the renowned broadcaster bail.

In an interview with citifmonline.com, a member of KKDs legal team, Gary Nimako said, We are seeking for the bail from the Human Rights court because the District court cant grant our client bail.

We will go back to the District court for the main case but this court cant grant him bail that is why we have begun filing processes at the Human Rights court for his bail. So we want the court to hear the bail application on 7th January, 2015, lawyer Nimako explained. He also revealed that the Attorney General will be served a copy of the application on Wednesday and they will also seek her advice on where the case should be tried. The District court cannot sit on the matter and so we also want the A-G to also advice on whether they can maintain the charge of rape against our client, he added.

Ms Thompson, according to the charge sheet presented to the court by the Police, the incident happened in a suite at the African Regent Hotel on December 27, 2014 when the accused invited her to help him powder his face.

She alleged that, KKD forcibly had sex with her in the washroom after which a report was made to the Police and a medical report was issued to the complainant to attend hospital.

When KKD was arrested, he denied the offence and stated that the Ms Thompson gave her consent and that he did not force her.
