An Accra Circuit Court has ordered the arrest of the Administrator of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital for releasing an accused person who was referred to the facility for medical care.
The Administrator released the accused to his grandmother without recourse to the court.
The administrator of the hospital was summoned to appear before the court but was absent when the matter was called.
The prosecution led by Detective Inspector Kofi Atimbire told the court that the hospital administrator was duly served but failed to appear in court.
He said presently the Police were unable to trace the whereabouts of the accused, Nicolas Dzifanu, a 20-year old porter and his grandmother.
The court presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku issued a bench warrant against the administrator of the hospital.
Nicolas Dzifanu was convicted for defilement of child under 16 years by having anal sex with a seven year old boy.
The matter has been adjourned to April 11.
