Arrest of journalist: Ajarfor was given heavy doses of pain killers, disregard 'no torture' reports- Lawyer
One of the Lawyers for Emmanuel Ajarfor the ModernGhana editor has urged the public to disregard reports circulating that the medical checkup proves that the National Security operatives did not torture the journalist.
In a post on Facebook by renowned journalist Mabel Aku Banaseh, the lawyer Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo wrote:
There has been a story in the media that the medical reports proved that he was not tortured.
The National Security operatives had earlier denied allegations by Ajarfor and Mr Britwum a reporter at ModernGhana.
There was a twist to the whole issue when Mr Britwum made a U-turn by quashing his earlier claims that he was tortured.
Mr Ajarfor, however, maintains that he was assaulted by the operative.
On Thursday, July 4, 2019, Mr Ajarfor was hit with three charges of mainly conspiracy to commit crime, unauthorized access to electronic records and stealing.
He is set to appear before the court to answer to the charges.
