The Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital in the Western Region has indicated that it has not released any medical records of Josephine Panyin Eshun Mensah Simons, the twenty-eight-year-old at the controversy of the now infamous kidnapping and disappearance of her pregnancy.
Medical Director of the Facility Dr. Joseph Tambil tells Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene Gyan, that the facility is likely to release the medical report about the victim now suspect to the police on Monday
“We have to bear in mind that the Police people are on the grounds and in touch with some of the people who may have taken care of her and all that so there are bits and pieces of information out there. So if somebody says that may be through their contacts have found a,b, or c, I cannot deny or confirm that but at the moment we haven’t issued a formal report to Police,” he said.
Dr. Joseph Tambil disclosed that the suspect Josephine Mensah is in stable condition and responding to treatment and assured that the facility will not be compromised in its work.
On Wednesday, the Ghana Police Service said its preliminary investigations on Josephine Panyin Eshun Mensah Simons case, indicate that she was never pregnant within the period under review, following medical examination by medical doctors at the Axim Government Hospital.
According to the police, it relied heavily on medical experts to arrive at that conclusion.
The police say the victim, Josephine Panyin Mensah, who is now a suspect, during interrogation mentioned the European Hospital in Takoradi as the hospital for her antenatal reviews and assessment, but medical records at the facility suggest that she visited the hospital without pregnancy somewhere in October last year.
The Police in a statement signed by Director-General, Public Affairs, ACP Kwesi Ofori said investigations also suggest the suspect may have conspired with other persons over her possible planned disappearance.
“Three people have been arrested for further questioning on possible conspiracy charges. Police will like to inform the public that adequate measures are in place to ensure she is safe as investigations continue,” it added.
