Lance Corporal Emmanuel Bartels, the Policeman being accused of defiling a 12-year-old Junior HIgh School student, has been interdicted by the Ghana Police Service.

Bartels’ docket has been forwarded to the Attorney General’s department for advice, officials say.

As we’ve already reported, there is an ongoing attempt by some high ranking state officials to cover up a case of defilement brought against Bartels by the 12-year-old.

A press conference to speak to the issue was held in Accra Thursday.

The 12 year-old, who is some seven months pregnant, and her family have unsuccessfully tried over the last seven months to be granted audience.
