My wife and children do not know I am in prison – Inmate who was jailed because of a bag of charcoal

An inmate at the Afram planes in the Eastern Region, Kwesi Donkor, has disclosed that his wife and children are not aware of his imprisonment.

He explained that he had traveled from another village to visit his friend, Baba Iddrisu, who was involved in the charcoal trade.

During his visit, he found his friend accused of charcoal theft and joined him at the police station to offer support.

Unfortunately, both he and his friend were implicated and detained for 18 months despite their efforts to prove their innocence.

Remarkably, none of the people he resides with or his immediate family members are aware of his imprisonment.

“They are not aware at all that I am in prison. Even the people living in my neighbourhood currently are not aware of my whereabout. My wife and children living far away from me are also not aware that i am in prison,” Kwesi Donkor told host, Mr. Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, on Crime Check Tv’s “Time with the prisoner show.”

Crime Check Foundation was incorporated on 6th November, 2015 under the Companies Act 1963, Act 179 as a company limited by guarantee.

A crime prevention advocacy organization that uses Life in Prison Documentaries to sensitize the public to the dangers of crime.

“Time with the prisoner show” over the years has not only served as a crime deterrent tool, but has been instrumental in highlighting major infractions of the law in Ghana’s Justice Delivery System, abuse of the rights of Prisoners, deplorable conditions in Ghana’s forty two prisons and the need for a review of Ghana’s Criminal Justice System.
