Black Stars midfielder, Christian Atsu Twasam has done it once again as he continues with his charity work.
The Newcastle’s winger in collaboration with the social justice activism group, Crime Check Foundation (CCF), has freed another batch of inmates from the James Camp Prison who were jailed for petty crimes.
Atsu and CCF usually go to the rescue of minor offenders who owe the justice system fines.
In a Facebook post released by a Facebook user with name Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, he announces the good work.
He posted, “WE AIDED THE RELEASE OF ANOTHER TWELVE FROM JAMES CAMP PRISON
As usual, their charges are familiar …. Stealing of banana, cocoa beans , fighting, debt, etc. Much as such petty crimes should not be condoned, what is the sense in putting the offenders behind bars and feeding them with the tax payers money. A person could not pay a court fine of three hundred cedis, so you put him in jail for three years and feed him? Calculate the cost involved in feeding him for three years against the court fine. Just don’t know what is preventing Parliament from passing the Non-Custodial Sentencing Bill into law. These guys should be made to work! Our gutters are choked. The country stinks!
