Fake kidnapped woman to spend weekend in prison despite bail, details

Fake kidnapped woman to spend weekend in prison

Josephine Panyin Mensah, the woman accused of fabricating her pregnancy and kidnapped in Takoradi, will spend the weekend in police prison due to delays at the Western Regional Lands Commission.

The Regional Lands Officer was not available to sign documentation on the properties to fund the accused’s GH50,000 bail, which was granted on September 27, 2021, according to her lawyer, Philip Fiifi Buckman.

Mr. Buckman told Eyewitness News that the Regional Lands Officer was the only person who could verify the documents.

“…We were just hoping that he [the Regional Lands Officer] would come to the office and do it [check the paperwork] for us, but that did not happen.”

Mr. Buckman also stated that he was unable to contact the Lands Officer, who was named on the documents.

The lawyer also stated that he was unable to get his client’s release through a court motion.

“I actually drafted my motion, but unfortunately for us, this week is the judges and magistrates’ conference, so no court will be sitting to hear [the bail request] for us.”

Martin Kpebu, a fellow lawyer who famously successfully challenged the status of non-bailable charges in the Supreme Court, regarded the current state of affairs as concerning.

Mr. Kpebu stated on Eyewitness News that she [Josephine Panyin Mensah] is not needed in detention for any further investigations or anything.

He also stated, “Personal liberty are too valuable to be left to an administrative agent,” as the Supreme Court has stated.

Furthermore, Mr. Kpebu believed Josephine Panyin Mensah’s bail conditions for a non-violent offense were excessive.

“The problem is that these criteria can be excessively demanding at times, and they hold accused people in detention unnecessarily. Why do I need a justification for an offense that I thought was a misdemeanor?”

Josephine Panyin Mensah is accused with manipulating a public official and spreading false information with the goal to instill fear and terror.

On Monday, she made her first court appearance and pleaded not guilty.

On September 16, Josephine Panyin Mensah, who was believed to be pregnant, went missing.

On September 21, she was discovered in Axim without the pregnancy.

She stated she gave birth on the same day she was supposedly kidnapped, and that her abductor took her baby.

However, according to a police statement released on Thursday, September 23, 2021, a complete medical check by medical doctors at the Axim Government Hospital confirmed that Josephine was not pregnant, contrary to earlier reports.

As a result, she was named as a suspect in the case, as authorities believe she may have planned her disappearance with others.
