Free Adom - 15 Year Old in Ghana's Worst Prison

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Adom will be 15 years old in 3 months but the policeman who handled his case claims he is 18 years. Unfortunately, his parents who would have clarified matters are both dead. He has been convicted for two years for stealing but this teenager says his nephew rather did the stealing. Whatever the situation, our interest has to do with his age and where he has been held captive - one of Ghana's worst adult prison.

If he is indeed a juvenile, as it appears he is, then our laws do not allow the imprisonment of juveniles in walled prisons. Rather, it makes provision for such kids to be sent to a Senior Correctional Centre. Unfortunately, we have such kids in our country's prisons, all because some unscrupulous and corrupt police officers allegedly inflate the ages of these children. Too bad!

While some political leaders who were convicted for fraud are still walking free, Adom remains in a penitentiary.

Adom deserves better!!!

We urge the president of Ghana to look into this issues and correct this corruption. 

We are looking for 1000 signatures to push this petition through to the Government of Ghana.
