The medical doctor at the centre of the sodomy revelations by Joy News is expected to appear before court Friday October 24.
Dr Sulley Ali Gabass who is already in Police custody is expected to be arraigned today after the 48 hour permissible time for a suspect to be detained elapses today.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Sevice Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) J. B Dankwa said even though investigations are still ongoing the senior doctor at the Effiankwanta Hospital in Takoradi in the Western Region will appear before court today.
“We are continuing investigation and it is likely we will send the suspect to court today, whether or not investigations are completed. We are enjoined by law to arraign suspects 48 hours after they have been picked up”, he said.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service has assured the public they will not shield Dr Gabass from any legal process being percued by the mandated constitutional institutions in the alleged sodomy case.
A statement jointly signed by the President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr Kwabena Opoku-Adusei; the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Ebenezer Appiah-Denkyira; and the Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council (MDC), Dr Eli K.Atipui, said the institutions would not only conduct thorough investigations into the allegation but also feed the public with the outcome of their investigations.
Joy News' Manasseh Azure-Awuni after weeks of investigations uncovered the horrifying deeds of the medical doctor whose conduct has left a 16-year-old boy bedridden for several months.
The victim, whose name has been withheld has been infected with HIV, but Dr Sulley Ali-Gabass says he cannot be blamed for the HIV.
He says he is HIV negative and could not possibly be the source of the virus.
The victim accepted a friendship request of Dr Ali-Gabass on facebook, an action he has since regretted.
Instead of mentoring him, the victim told Azure-Awuni, the gay medical doctor had anal sex with him on five occasions; three in his car and two at his (doctor's) residence in Alajo.
On all occasions, he said he was threatened and later blackmailed into submission..
His anal region has been infected, forcing doctors to perform a surgery in order to save his life.
Manasseh Azure-Awuni after speaking to the victim, located the Alajo residence of Dr Ali-Gabass and had interactions with occupants of the house who admitted it was the residence of the Effia Nkwanta hospital doctor.
The Joy News investigator then contacted old school mates of the medical doctor some of whom admitted Dr Ali-Gabass exhibited gay tendencies while at school.
And while the rumour was all over campus, none of those who peddled the rumour had any evidence, except for young Ali-Gabass' admiration for his junior male friends whom he was overly protective of.
Manasseh Awuni later visited the facebook page of Ali-Gabass and found a write-up about gay parents which he shared.
With this circumstantial evidence, the Joy FM investigator confronted Dr. Ali-Gabass who admitted to his involvement with the victim, but described it as a mistake.
The Effia Nkwanta hospital has described the ongoing saga as a purely private matter for the doctor and would only act if the hospital is petitioned.
