On Monday, October 4, 2021, a Takoradi Circuit Court presided over by His Honour Michael Cudjoe Ampadu granted her bail.
Takoradi woman pleads not guilty
In Josephine's first appearance in court, she told the court that she was not guilty despite claims by the police that she confessed to faking her kidnapping and pregnancy.
She was arraigned before a Takoradi Harbour Circuit Court A in the Western Region.
She was slapped with two charges including deceiving a public officer and publication of false news with intent to cause fear and panic.
Takoradi woman will be prosecuted no matter what
Prior to being arraigned in court, the acting Director-General of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori, has said the Takoradi woman, Josephine Panyin Mensah, will be prosecuted for faking pregnancy and kidnapping.
According to ACP Ofori, action may be taken against her because she wasted the resources of the police by creating a fake story and sending the police on a fruitless assignment.
In a Citinews report, he said looking at the development closely, there is a greater possibility that she might appear before the court to face the law.
