Donation of colostomy bags bring relief to alleged police rape victim
-protesters call for immediate justice
Colwyn Harding received some relief with the donation of colostomy bags even as just over a dozen citizens yesterday afternoon staged a protest opposite the Public Buildings to demand that the police in his alleged rape be brought before the court without delay and face an immediate trial.
The protest, which coincided with yesterday’s sitting of the National Assembly, was organized in the wake of Harding’s allegations that he was brutally sodomised with a baton by a policeman, who he has also accused of beating him at the Timehri Police Station where he was subsequently imprisoned.
Police have launched an official probe and the policeman accused of the assault has been placed under close arrest, while others have been transferred for its duration.
