Ghanaian international soccer star, Christian Atsuh has paid the fine of a blind prisoner who was jailed.
Moments after paying the fine, Mr Peter Ennin was released from prison. One can see the joy written all over his face.
We don’t have disability-friendly facilities in our prisons in Ghana, so the burden of keeping such inmates falls on the Prison Service that have limited resources. Too bad!
God bless Christian for this great work!
In October last year, Atsu prevented a mother and her two daughters from spending three months in prison for taking some leftover corn estimated at GH¢10 which did not belong to them.
A court found them guilty and consequently sentenced all three including a lactating mother after they were unable to raise GH¢ 360 slapped on them.
He came to the rescue of the convicts and through the Crime Check Foundation donated GH¢1,000 for their release.
