The Lebanese national, Haddad Rabih, who has been accused of raping his 19-year-old house help at Airport Hills residential area in Accra last Saturday, has been remanded into police custody by an Accra District court.

The accused person appearing before a court presided over by Arit Nsemoh did not have his plea taken.

Counsel for the accused person Ralph Opoku-Adusei in a bail application pleaded with the court to grant his client bail since he has a serious medical condition which could lead to a heart attack and even his death if confined in police cells.

But the judge adjourned the case to December 19 for him to still remain in custody.

A former Attorney General, Mrs Marietta Brew-Appiah Oppon who has vowed to follow up to ensure that justice is served in the case was in court to hold brief with prosecution.
