Ernest Green, a 24-year-old nurse at the Damango Government Hospital in the Northern Region, who was arrested by the Damango Police for allegedly raping a 24-year-old Italian woman, who was on admission at the hospital, has been discharged by a Tamale District Magistrate Court.

Magistrate Anthony Ansah discharged the accused nurse on grounds that there was no evidence to prove that the victim was actually raped.

The judgment by the court had vindicated nurses and staff of the Damongo Hospital who strongly insisted the accusation that Ernest Green had raped the Italian woman was palpably false.

Angry nurses and staff of the Damongo Hospital and friends of the accused had asked him to file for damages and demand compensation from the court for the mess he went through which almost tarnished his reputation and destroyed his career.

Some nurses who spoke to DAILY GUIDE said from the beginning of the case they knew that all the allegations levelled against the accused were never true.

Nurses and workers of the Damongo Government Hospital embarked on a sit-down strike in solidarity with the accused as regards his unlawful arrest.

Health personnel who came to the court premises to support their colleague were seen jubilating on the court premises after the judgment had been given.

It would be recalled that Ernest Green was arrested by the Damango Police for allegedly raping an Italian woman, who was on admission at the hospital.

According to the victim, she was rushed to the hospital after she had been afflicted by malaria.

She said upon her arrival at the facility, the suspect informed her of the availability of a private ward.

The victim said Ernest Green helped her to lie on bed at the private ward, saying “suddenly he fondled my breast, removed my panties and eventually penetrated me.”

The victim said even though she was conscious during the rape, she was extremely weak to stop him.
