Lawyer Francis Ohene Shares Legal Perspective On Rev. Kusi-Boateng's Multiple Identities Saga
Francis K. Ohene of Eshun, Anderson Yebuah, Obeng & Co. has been sharing the position of the law on the multiple identity saga.
The private legal practitioner tells YEN.com.gh in an exclusive interview that as per the laws of the land, a person who deliberately uses different names with different birthdates on different documents is liable for prosecution.
“Where a person deliberately uses different names with a different date of birth, on different documents and uses all those identities simultaneously for different transactions, the question to be answered includes; what is the intention of the declarant, why does he have a different date of birth with a different name on one document and on another document, a different date of birth with a different name, all referable to the same person.”
Lawyer Ohene also spelt out the sort of criminal offence that can be slapped on an individual like Rev. Kusi-Boateng who bears multiple identities.
“Why has he not deposed to a statutory declaration to correct the inconsistencies? If it can be established that these declarations culminating in the inconsistent names were made under oath, then he has committed a criminal offence of Perjury and has exposed himself to prosecution. When he is found guilty after the prosecution, he may be sentenced to a fine or Prison or both depending on the gravity of the deceit.”
Section 41 (E) Act 750 of the National Identity Register Act 2008 states that: A person who is in possession of more than one national identity card that is intended to show the individual’s identity, commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of not more than four hundred and fifty penalty units or to a term of imprisonment of not more than three years or to both.
