Interview with the 3 Girls Who Allegedly Stole clothes At Accra Mall Tells Their Story, Threatens to Sue Mr. Price

You must be
living under a stone if you haven’t heard about the 3 Girls who allegedly stole
panties and Female stuff at Mr. Price at the Accra Mall and were humiliated by
the shop owners by letting them kneel down and crawl outside of the mall. READ
MORE ABOUT IT HERE! They told their story to MyJoyOnline.Com, Listen to the
audio below. Shaken and subdued, three ladies humiliated for shoplifting at the
Accra Shopping Mall have said they are considering legal action against their
oppressors at Mr. Price for the inhuman treatment meted out to them. the ladies
[names withheld] admitted to shoplifting after they paid Ghc150 for some
clothes but said they preferred being handed over to the police to going
through the experience one of them described as “equal to lynching”. Narrating
the incident, the ladies said they had gone to Mr. Price to buy some clothes
but took more than they paid for after trying them on. Caught and faced with embarrassment,
they apologized to the staff but their plea for forgiveness was not taken.
Their offer to go home and get money to pay was also not taken. A good
Samaritan’s attempt to pay for them was shot down by Miss Roberta, who warned
him not to come any close to their shop. They said Miss Roberta, a manager at
Mr.Price made them kneel down for at least 25 minutes before barking orders at
them to crawl amidst verbal and physical abuse. She is said to have also
encouraged others to join in smacking them as they crawled four minutes from
the shop to the exit “If anything they should have sent us to the police
station.. It’s not fair,” one of the traumatized ladies said. The ladies – two
SHS graduates and one a Student of the University of Ghana – said they were
traumatized and are huddled together at home since last night. They have not
stepped out of the house since the incident which occurred Monday evening.
According to them, a man claiming to be a policeman apologized to them and
asked them not to report the incident to the police station. A lawyer, Samson
Ayenini is backing their decision to sue arguing “the question of the
presumption of innocence of any person charged with a criminal offence is so
fundamental; it found its way into our constitution”. He said despite their
admission to shoplifting, “unless and until a court finds them guilty or they
have pleaded guilty to a court, they are supposed to be presumed innocent”. The
incident is “most embarrassing” not only to the shop but Ghana’s image as a law-governed
country, the lawyer noted. He condemned on-lookers who did nothing to prevent a
glaring abuse of the rights of the young ladies.
