“Today, we prayed that once again they should be granted bail [but] the court gave reasons why they cannot give these children bail,” lawyer Adu Darko told journalists after Monday’s proceedings.
“Our argument was on the fact that per the welfare principle in the Juvenile Justice Act being the objective, they have to consider the education of these juveniles and then give them to their parents so that they report to court from home. But the court indicated that even as it stands now the school is a hostile ground for the children, looking at the nature of the issues.”
