Dr. Ali Gabass, accused of sodomy and defilement jailed 25 years

An Accra Circuit court presided over by Mrs Agyemang Budu has sentenced medical doctor at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Dr. Sulley Ali-Gabass to 25 years imprisonment.

According to the ruling, the evidence provided by the prosecution was very substantial which proved the guilt of the accused of the charge of defilement .

The judge however discharged Dr. Gabass of the charge of unnatural carnal knowledge which she described as “bad in law.”

Justice Agyemang Budu also indicated her decision was to serve as deterrent to people involved in such actions.

Dr. Gabass who has been in custody since June 2014 was charged with two-counts of defiling a child under 16 years and unnatural carnal knowledge, an offence he has denied.
