If you are a man hoping to win a case against a woman or a number of women who may have raped you, then you would probably have to forget it as the law doesn’t favor adult male rape victims.
This revelation was made on The Late Afternoon Show on GHOne TV on Monday when the host posed a question to her guest and legal practitioner, George Tetteh-Wayo wondering if a a man can be raped.
According to the lawyer, rape is in respect of a female: carnal knowledge of a female, according to section 97 of the 1960 constitution and as a result. He further expatiated on the law which however favors males under the age of 16 who are defiled.
His assertions were backed by Chief Superintendent Owusua Kyeremeh, National Coordinating Director for Dovvsu who run us through the process by which alleged perpetrators are brought to book.
