I’m protecting other women; I won’t withdraw rape case – Andam

An alleged rape victim, and Canada based Lawyer, Kuukuwa Andam has said she is hell bent on ensuring the President of the Ghana Bar Association, Anthony Forson, will not try any sexual harassment on other young female Lawyers eventhough she has been enduring name-calling in her resolve to press charges of rape against the former.

“I’m protecting women that are going to come after me into the law…I’m doing this criminal case also to make sure that Tony does not hurt any woman the way that he hurt me, because I almost died if not for the intervention of a few other people.” she told GHOne TV.

Miss Andam says the denial by the President of the Ghana Bar Association over rape case is disappointing and sad.

She feels this could have been the opportunity for Mr. Anthony Forson to accept blame and apologise for the ordeal he put her through instead of denying the rape allegations.

The President of the Ghana Bar Association, Lawyer Anthony Forson Jnr has denied the allegations of rape by his colleague Canadian based lawyer, Miss Kuukuwa Andam, which happened in 2012.

A statement released on behalf of Tony Forson by his lawyers, ‘Beyuo & Co’, described the allegations from the daughter of the former Vice-chancellor of KNUST as “palpably false”.

“Mr Forson sincerely and emphatically denies that he has committed any such offence against the said Kuukuwa Andam,” the statement stressed, adding in due course he’ll be vindicated.

Miss Kuukuwa Andam has alleged that Anthony Forson Jnr rapped her in a hotel room in Washington DC in 2012 but she now has the courage to open up on her ordeal with the GBA President.
