‘To Remand Owusu Bempa Is Out Of Context’- Dr. Maurice Ampaw

Ghanaian lawyer, Maurice Ampaw has chided the judge who initially remanded the founder and leader of Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Rev Owusu Bempah as he says it was out of context.

Speaking to media personality, Kofi Adomah in an interivew on Angel FM, Maurice Ampaw stated that Rev Owusu Bempah does not deserve to be put in remand over his case with Nana Agradaa.

A widely circulated statement by the Ghana Police Service said that Rev Owusu Bempah was arrested together with three other suspects namely Michael Boateng, Frederick Ohene, and Nathaniel Agyekum, on Sunday, September 13, 2021, at his church premises.

According to him, a personality such as Rev Owusu Bempah who is a man of God does not been put behind bars as he also pointed out health factors since COVID-19 still persists.

Maurice Ampaw said;

“Now, I’m also worried with the conduct of the judge today if truly Owusu Bempah has been remanded because we were all in this country when the Supreme Court, led by Justice Dotse, warned that we don’t unnecessary refuse bail. Every offense, even murder, is bailable in this country.

“Therefore, Owusu Bempah is known, Owusu Bempah should have been granted self-recognizance bail but on what grounds did the judge decide to remand him and refuse bail? I’m totally worried and you see, this thing is sending a certain kind of signal,” he said.
