“Five days ago, my clients reported a rape case. The suspect used police to turned the case on its head and got the ladies detained in same cell with men. I was livid. It didn’t end there, they asked them to bring a level 14 civil servant, C of O to surety their bail”.
“I managed to get them out without those stringent bail conditions. You now see why women don’t come out?”
