55 percent of Ghanaian children dream of traveling for greener shades in the next future.

A report compiled by a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Child Rights International, has shown that 55% of children in Ghana dream of migrating to other parts of the world in the next 20 years in search of greener pastures.

The report, which was conducted between June 2020 and April 2021, had over 11,000 children aged between 12 and 17 from all 16 regions taking part in the survey.

“55% of the respondents say they wish to migrate to another country, while 11% would either stay in the country or leave”, the report said.

The majority of the respondents cited greener pastures, education, and a better standard of living as reasons why they would leave the country when there is a chance.

Speaking to Citi News after the launch of the report, the Executive Director of Child Rights International, Bright Appiah, said successive governments must put systems in place to avert the situation.

“The children who want to leave the country are leaving for a reason. So clearly, if you are able to put things in place, we would affirm the belief system of our children in this country and they will contribute their quota. There are things that are going on that show that we do not have a national agenda that the children have an understanding of.

Technical Universities senior administrators declares strike over poor conditions of service.

Members of TUSAAG laid down their tools in January 2020, but were forced to suspend the action following an injunction secured by the National Labour Commission at the court against the strike.

TUSAAG has tabled four issues of concern including conditions of service and Tier 2 pensions as the basis for the latest strike.

The association also disclosed that its petitions to the National Pensions Regulatory Authority and the release of the tier 2 contributions of its members have not been done, making life unbearable for its retired members.

In an interview with Citi News, the President of TUSAAG, Honu Edem, said the Association will rescind its decision if the government provides a roadmap with strict timelines to resolve their concerns.

According to him, until that is done, they will not return to work.

“We have been working without conditions of service for our members for a long time, and we think that we can no longer work while our welfare conditions are not sorted by the government. The conditions of service are of the essence to us, and it’s part of the issues that we are tabling for immediate action by the government.”

Man arrested for hacking cameras and obtaining 1,000images of naked kids.

A British man has been arrested in Benidorm on suspicion of hacking the home security cameras of more than 70 families around the world and obtaining more than 1,000 images of naked children.

Police say the alleged paedophile, who worked as a babysitter and private tutor, also sold child porn on the dark web using Bitcoins and was accused of sexually harassing nearly a dozen minors he filmed naked in video chats before threatening them.

He was held by Spanish police following a tip-off from colleagues in Queensland in Australia.

Images of sex abuse were found during a search of his home as well as evidence pointing to the use of cryptocurrency and money transfers to Romania to people involved in child abuse.

The suspect’s age has not yet been revealed although police say he was known to the authorities after being arrested as a minor for committing child porn offences

Detectives discovered his real identity after breaking through tight security he had established.

The footage he obtained by hacking families’ IP indoor home security cameras included that of children based in Britain as well as the US, Canada and Brazil.

A spokesman for Spain’s National Police confirmed: “Officers have arrested an alleged paedophile in Benidorm who had managed to access the home security cameras of more than 70 families in different countries around the world and obtained more than 1,000 videos of naked children.

“He also allegedly sexually harassed at least 11 minors he filmed naked and sometimes threatened after they accessed video chats.

“He was very active on the dark web and had organised a system of child porn sales based on bitcoins or the exchange of images filmed by his clients.

“Investigations began when officers from the Task Force Argos, a branch of the Queensland Police Service responsible for the investigation of online child exploitation and abuse, discovered sexual images they suspected were of a child from an area in the Pacific.

“Their analysis pointed to the images being modified and posted online from Spain.

“Spanish National Police then began a process of close cooperation with their Australian colleagues to try to identify and detain the person responsible.”

Revealing the detainee operated under different user names online to post his sordid images, the Spanish force added in a statement: “National Police specialists also discovered he offered his services as a babysitter and, taking advantage of his British nationality, worked as a home tutor teaching English.

“This work enable him to have around 10 pupils, which heightened the concern of investigators who decided to proceed to arrest him.”

The police spokesman said: “The home security cameras he hacked are designed to enable parents to monitor their kids when they are not at home and can be accessed over mobiles.

“If they are not properly configured they are very vulnerable.

“In this case more than than 1,000 videos belonging to families from countries like Brazil, the US, the UK and Canada among others have been found.

“It has also been discovered that on at least one occasion, the suspect obtained images of the underwear of the children he tutored privately and filmed without their knowledge.

“He is now being held on remand in prison following a court appearance as the investigation against him continues.

Give Filmmakers tax rebates on imported movie equipments- Ivan Quashinga

Ghanaian filmmaker, Ivan Quashigah has called on the government to give filmmakers tax rebates on movie equipment they import into the country.

During an appearance on Citi TV‘s entertainment talk show, The Chat, Mr. Quarshigah told host AJ Sarpong that the high cost of film equipment is taking a toll on film producers in Ghana.

“One problem for filmmakers in this country is the cost of film equipment. We buy the equipment. There is no equipment gear house in Ghana where you can go and loan a camera to film. And the cameras are becoming very expensive. And when you bring them into this country, because of the cost, you are also bound to pay heavy duties on them,” he said.

“I believe that if the government gives us some rebate on the import duties of the equipment we bring in, it will reduce the burden on filmmakers,” Ivan further noted.

Speaking about the effects of telenovelas on the Ghanaian movie industry, he said there must be a strategic attempt to limit the prominence given to them on local television.

He intimated that even though he is not calling for the total ban of foreign telenovelas on our screens, he believes if prime time slots on TV are reserved for only local productions, as is done in Nigeria, the Ghanaian movie industry won’t be overshadowed by foreign content.

Withdraw disciplinary petition against Dominic Ayine- NDC to CJ

The main opposition political party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has asked the Chief Justice to withdraw his disciplinary complaint against Dr Dominic Ayine.

The Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah has reported lawyer Dr. Dominic Ayine to the Disciplinary Committee of the General Legal Council (GLC) for statements he allegedly made during a panel discussion on Presidential Election Petitions and their impact on Africa’s Democracy.

A copy of the petition, signed by the Judicial Secretary Justice Cynthia Pamela Addo, accuses Dr. Ayine of questioning the independence of the Judiciary due to the manner the Supreme Court adjudicated the 2020 presidential election petition.

The petition says Dr. Ayine’s basis for his assertion during the discussion is the Supreme Court’s failure to apply the rules of procedure as well as the consistent and continuous dismissal of the petitioner’s applications or reliefs.

“These comments are made against the backdrop of the Supreme Court discharging Dr. Ayine on a charge of contempt for similar comments made against members of the Supreme Court during the Election Petition hearing. Dr. Ayine apologized profusely when he appeared before the Court on the Contempt charge and admitted to having made comments which were unbecoming of a Lawyer of his standing and a former Deputy Attorney-General.”

KTU students build traffic light with cameras to boost security to tackle campus crime.

The limited use of technology in the fight against crime in Ghana, has partly been blamed for the increase in crime in the country.

In the case of the recent bullion van robbery attack at Jamestown in Accra for instance, the absence of state-owned CCTV cameras is hampering the efforts of the police in apprehending the suspects who robbed the van, and killed a police officer and a trader.

Management of the koforidua technical University is therefore proposing a more scientific and reliable method of intelligence gathering to help security agencies fightcrime in the country.

The Vice Chancellor of the University Professor David Kofi Essuman spoke to citinews about the latest innovation of the university.

He said unlike the 2012 Election Petition judgement when all the judges gave reasons for the positions they took on the main points of the case, that was not the case in the 2020 Presidential Election Petition.  

“Each of the judges had a chance to articulate the reasons and to explain their point of view from a legal authority standpoint. In this last petition, I think as we all saw virtually in all the decisions, the Chief Justice will write an opinion and everybody was on board”, he said.

This, he said is a dangerous precedent.

Build sickle cell clinic in obuasi to provide care for patients – Government urge on

It is estimated that about 15,000 babies are born with sickle cell disease in Ghana each year.

Available statistics from the Obuasi Municipal Health Directorate indicate that a total of 43 new Sickle cell cases have so been reported in Obuasi between January to May this year while in 2020 alone, a total of 77 new cases were reported.

This development, according to Mr. Manu, is worrying hence called for a sickle clinic in Obuasi to create awareness and also provide quality healthcare for persons living with sickle cell anaemia, especially in emergency situations.

“Currently patients have to travel to Kumasi to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to attend sickle cell clinic since it is the only sickle cell clinic in the Region. This puts some sort of financial burden on them as well as their parents. Those who do not have the means are denied of quality healthcare.”

Again, the General Manager of SMS Media called on stakeholders to prioritize the healthcare needs of people living with sickle cell anaemia.
