Child Rights Int’l cautions media to refrain from exposing faces of Kasoa murder suspects

Child Rights International has cautioned the media to desist from exposing the faces and halt publishing the identity of the two teenagers who allegedly murdered a 10-year-old boy in the Ga South District in the Greater Accra Region.

The organisation’s caution, which was contained in a statement said, exposing the teenage suspects in the media was unethical and breaches sections of the Juvenile Justice Act 2003.

The Child Rights International wants half of such unprofessional practice in the media effective immediately owing it exposes the teenagers’ lives to floodgates of danger.

“We understand the public is upset, judging how the two teenagers planned and carried out the act, “notwithstanding, we should try and protect their identity, bearing in mind that any public exposure of the teenagers could also put them in danger”, Child Rights International said in a statement available to Original News.

Child Rights International also in no uncertain terms condemned the act and further expressed its condolences to the bereaved family.
